@ Espresso Library

It's time to set your imagination alight with more wonderful ideas and stories. If you haven't been before, you're in for a treat. 6-8 speakers each deliver their piece against a backdrop of 20 slides. Each slide transitions to the next after precisely 20 seconds, meaning that the speaker must be clear and concise.

We love the format, and so do our regulars!

It's free, and we usually fill the venue (the beautiful Espresso Library), so we recommend arriving early. But hey, it's up to you.

Look at our lovely speakers below. 

See you there!

Colin and Jon.

Tim Headley struggled with his own identity and confidence. In often cases, the source of the struggle can be traced back to the level of our father's presence and influence growing up. This story is about being fatherless, the need for true identity and search to meet the man who can be called "dad".

The Art of 'Her'

@ VOL 9 ON APR 25, 2017

Loreto Valenzuela talks about "The art of 'Her'". “...real adventures, I reflected, do not happen to people who remain at home: they must be sought abroad." From An encounter by James Joyce. Human encounters, as we all know, are inevitable. Most humans, adhering to their daily routine, tend to have encounters with the same people. However, when one leaves the routine and for example goes on holiday one finds themselves with many more fortuitous encounters than usual. What exactly counts as a fortuitous encounter, what effect may it have on ones life? This presentation will invite you to explore the links between art, curiosity and fortuitous human encounters.
