Ok, not that many in the grand scheme of things, but I’ve noticed a small but determined flurry of talk/lecture/discussion events coming through my RSS feeds in the past few days. These are they…
D’log has flagged up:
- A Series of Conversations organised by the Birmingham Photography and Archive Research Group; and
- Some events and lectures accompanying the Barber Institute’s Cityscapes exhibition. The ‘adult events’ listed on that page are either couched in heavily euphemistic terms or not actually smutty at all. I suspect the latter.
Also, We Are Eastside bring news of:
- A writing talk from Dr Paul McDonald, presented by Hooky Street Press and presumably the first in a series. This one’s about how classic theories of humour can be made relevant to writers; and
- There is no Script for This – a chance for “students, recent graduates and emerging practitioners a chance to quiz people at different stages of their careers as they talk about highs, lows and pivotal moments during their first years out of art school”
There are also loads of things happening as part of the Love Architecture Festival and it wouldn’t be outrageous to assume that the walking tours have some sort of talky aspect to them. Sticking strictly to the theme of this post, there’s a talk from LEGO’s Senior Design Manager this evening.
