Public engagement

Each year we hold a series of events aimed at bringing Philosophy to the wider public.

Our highly successful Philosophy Café (run in conjunction with the John Hansard Gallery) has been running since 2009: the Café offers regular, informal lunchtime discussions that are open to all. We regularly hold series of talks at the City Art Gallery exploring fundamental philosophical questions.

These events provide philosophical stimulation in a relaxed atmosphere for like-minded individuals where no previous philosophical experience is required - just an appetite for ideas.
