17 January meeting: Hot Potatoes (open mike session). Come along and speak your mind!

Once again, we are opening the floor at our January meeting to all of our members. Anyone can speak for 5 minutes (absolute maximum 10 minutes) on a topic of their own choice that is in some way related to humanism. It can be a personal account or an objective review. The idea is that you talk about something that interests you, and you interest us!  You can use PowerPoint if you wish, but that is not essential. Please email the chairman with the title of your planned talk to prevent duplication.

Thursday 17  January at 7.30 pm, University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ. All welcome. A voluntary contribution is requested for room hire and refreshments.

You are very welcome to come for tea and coffee from 7 pm to meet and chat with other members and guests.

Meeting on 18 January: Hot Potato (open mike) session

Start 2018 with our HOT POTATO – OPEN MIKE meeting on Thursday 18 January 2018 at 7.30 pm, at University Centre Shrewsbury, Guildhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury SY3 8HQ.

Anyone can talk for 5 minutes (exceptionally 10minutes) on any subject somewhat related to humanism or just something that’s important to you.

So if something interests or fascinates you – then you have a chance of interesting and fascinating us!

Last year the talks included a range of interesting topics such as assisted dying (by Noel Conway of course), humanist communities, the “Alt-Right” (Trump, Bannon, Putin etc), transgender issues, disability law and humanism, problems at a local faith school, picking up litter and someone read a clever and funny poem.

If you would like to do a short presentation, please email our chair Simon Nightingale chair@shropshire.humanist.org.uk and let him know.

You can use PowerPoint if you wish, but many don’t.
