Our Spring 2023 programme of events explored the interconnections of AI and data with humanity through conversations, performances, and workshops.
Our Autumn 2022 programme featured more than 20 events exploring crisis, migration, displacement and equality coalescing around the theme of Climate Justice.
Our public events seasons are co-created with people from across the University of Edinburgh. If you'd like to contribute ideas for the programme please contact the events team.Call for proposals
