Provided Description:

Talk by Catherine Heymans, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Edinburgh.

About this Event

Just over 95% of our Universe comes in the shrouded form of dark energy and matter that we can neither explain nor directly detect. Together, these two dark entities play out an epic cosmic battle with the gravity of dark matter slowly pulling structures in the Universe together, and dark energy fuelling the Universe’s accelerated expansion, making it ever harder for those structures to grow.

Catherine Heymans has used the world’s best telescopes to map out the invisible dark matter in our Universe and confront different theories on the dark Universe. She will explore this dark enigma and explain why she thinks in order to truly understand the dark Universe, we will need some new physics that will forever change our cosmic view.

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/planning-the-post-pandemic-city-online-lecture-series-tickets-104763640870?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch

This lecture series explores how we can re-imagine our post-pandemic cities to be more inclusive, green, and liveable.

In many places, air quality has improved, nature has become more prominent and neighbors are starting to speak for the first time. This online lecture series organized by the Planning Society at Queen's University Belfast will explore, through comparative practice, how planning can reimagine our cities to enhance well-being through creating more vibrant, sustainable and biodiverse places.

A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture explores the cultural and creative lives of the largely young undocumented Mexican population in New York City since September 11, 2001. Inspired by a dialogue between the landmark works of Paul Gilroy and Gloria Anzaldúa, it develops a new analytic framework, the Atlantic Borderlands, which bridges Mexican diasporic experiences in New York City and the black diaspora, not as a comparison but in recognition that colonialism, interracial and interethnic contact through trade, migration, and slavery are connected via capitalist economies and technological developments. This book is based on ten years of fieldwork in New York City, with members of a vibrant community of young Mexican migrants who coexist and interact with people from all over the world. It focuses on youth culture including hip hop, graffiti, muralism, labor activism, arts entrepreneurship and collective making.

Potatoes, Plum Pudding and Peacock: eating with the Victorians at Christmas

Fri, 4 December 2020 2:00PM – 3:00PM

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/potatoes-plum-pudding-and-peacock-eating-with-the-victorians-at-christmas-tickets-125471132535?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch 

Provided Description:
The Victorians are well known for the reinvention of Christmas, moving it from an unfashionably drunken knees-up to a (sometimes) more sedate family celebration. But while we can give the era a grateful nod for the Christmas tree, carols and crackers, let’s be honest - it’s really all about the food.

Most of the foods we think of as Christmas were, for a long time, simply seasonal feast foods. But over the course of the Victorian period, plum pudding became Christmas pudding, Twelfth cake lost out to Christmas cake, and turkey started to triumph. In this illustrated talk, Annie Gray will take us on a tour through the Christmas tables of the rich, the poor and the doing just fines, to show how the Christmas dinner we love (or hate) today came about. You may even pick up some take-home tips.

TEDxMileHigh: VISION - A Free Virtual Event

December 5

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tedxmilehigh-vision-a-free-virtual-event-registration-118004198735
Provided Description:

What do you see for the future, or can you see at all? The way forward is messy and clouded by complex challenges. And, while there is no magical formula for perfect vision, when we ground ourselves and look inward, we start to see more clearly and reconnect with our humanity.
And while there is no blueprint that will guarantee perfect clarity as we move forward, we can look to our guides: humility, curiosity, and ingenuity.
We can look to the past, knowing that a vision for what lies ahead cannot be divorced from remembrance of what lies behind. It takes courage to admit mistakes. It requires boldness to share your voice. And it takes vision to step back so that we can move forward together.
Every new idea was deemed impossible until someone came along and shared a new reality. We invite you to share your vision. We don’t care what’s possible. We want to know that you’ll dream with us and that we’ll awaken each other until we do the impossible.

It is the perfect time to pick up new hobbies, like drawing!

You will begin by learning the elements and principles of design, where you'll learn about line, shape, value, color, contrast, and many more of the building blocks of drawing and design. Then, you will get right into an observational drawing exercise, where you'll learn how to map out and draw an object with proper proportions using lines and values. Finally, you'll learn how to draw a human face, and then how to draw a portrait from a photo reference. After taking this course, you will have a very strong foundational understanding of how to draw by hand.

Also, as a follow up to this workshop, once we get back to 'normal' offline events, we will look to collaborate with other 'artsy' events, so this is a nice first step.
