Legendary African-Americans in London 1860s-1960s
February 21st 2021, from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM
Many African-Americans came to Britain in the mid 1800s to escape US white supremacy. Once there they gave speeches, networked, raised funds, collaborated, shared strategies with and inspired African-British people who had similar struggles. These visits stretched from before the US Civil War (1865) to the Black Power movements of the 1970s and even now. This online event will consist of a one hour presentation, plus Q&A.
Free Online Networking Event with Projob
Several dates, from January 11th to March 18th 2021
Expats often have to rely on networking for professional growth and recruitment opportunities, but this has gotten difficult now that there are limited chances to get together in person. This networking event, hosted by Projob, offers the chance to network with recruiters and labor market specialists from the comfort of your own home.
Every Tuesday for the rest of the year, at 1:30 PM
Every Tuesday, the Melbourne Polytechnic International Student Association organizes an opportunity to practice your English conversation skills, with attendees from a range of countries, cultures and ages. Bring your lunch, and feel free to join & leave anytime!
Unloomed Light Show: An Installation for Strings and Certain Sketchy Objects of String Theory
From January 17th to February 14th 2021
Unloomed is a light installation which has been adapted so that it’s viewable on an online stream. Via this stream, you’ll be able to hear and see how strings sound when they are set in motion and you get to see what’s happening inside of the installation. If the lights seem random, take a closer look! You’ll see that the strings are attached to the ceiling and wooden beams on the floor. With performances from three different groups, both the light and sound comes together in a system.
