We have a variety of external speakers come in and give talks. These talks are completely free of charge, so please do come along! In addition, we have members of EA Durham lead talks and workshops on various topics and skills.
We ask attendees to register so we have an idea of the numbers expected. We often offer free vegan pizza after the talk!
