Reflections On The Speaking World


Dr Louise Livingstone & Mary Attwood

Tuesday 20th December 2022

6.30pm – 8pm (UK time) via Zoom


As a thank you to all of our supporters over the past year, we would love you to join us as we share excerpts from several texts that have moved us in relation to the topic of The Speaking World.

As we move into the darkest part of the year, we invite you to join us as we reflect on these texts, which bring light and illumination. We will begin the session listening to the texts detailed below, whilst at the same time focussing on specific images. Following this, we will open the floor to free-roaming discussion and reflection, trusting the wisdom of the dynamic space that we organically create together.

Prior to the session, listen to Louise and Mary reading their chosen texts on Spotify (or your favourite podcasting platform). See link here:
