We're excited to announce that MAP@Leeds is working with the University of the Third Age (U3A) Leeds philosophy club to provide introductory sessions on a range of philosophical topics. U3A is a national self-help organisation (made up of local groups) for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.
The U3A Leeds philosophy club meets at the amazing Inkwell Arts Cafe (ran by Leeds Mind) on the third Monday of every month (except August & December). We'll be giving talks and organising external speakers (from both PhD students and academic staff) throughout 2017. We're delighted to be working with such a friendly and engaged group, and providing meaningful contact with philosophy academics in the community!
