O que fazemos

This Meetup group aims to explore some of the cultural aspects of life, and get people sharing experiences and getting thinking! We are a relaxed and friendly bunch, and we welcome new members to any of our events!

We host:

Monthly book group, held on the third Wednesday of each month.
Monthly film group, a trip to The Broadway cinema held on the first Wednesday of each month.
Nottingham Classics concerts.
Book swaps, where you can trade your old books with other group members.
Nottingham Café Scientifique and Culturel where, for the price of a coffee or glass of wine, you can come to explore the latest ideas in science and culture. Cafe Sci meets on Monday nights during term time. You can read more about Nottingham's Café Sci here (http://www.meetup.com/nottingham-culture-cafe-sci/pages/about_-_Cafe_Scientifique_et_Culturel_%28Nottingham%29).

We also hold other events or lectures that may be of interest, so why not look at our calendar (http://www.meetup.com/nottingham-culture-cafe-sci/#calendar) and see if anything sparks your interest!

As much as possible we try and co-ordinate our events with those on the Nottingham Social Activities Group (http://www.meetup.com/nottingham-social/) with whom we share many members; so why not join both and have a packed social calendar!

Cafe Sci: The Mathematics that can stop an AI Apocalypse

Dr Nira Chamberlain Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications (Vice President, Professional Affairs and Industry & Visiting Fellow at Loughborough University.) How do you prevent AI from taking over the world? In this talk, Nira Chamberlain discusses how mathematics is providing crucial answers. Mathematical modelling is the most creative side of applied mathematics which itself connects pure maths with science and technology. Mathematical models look into the real world, translate it into mathematics, solve that mathematics and then apply the solution back into the real world. MEETING FORMAT: Our speaker talks, uninterrupted for 20 minutes, to introduce their topic. During a break to get drinks, the Hat goes round. Then there is an hour’s chaired question and answer session. Cafe Sci is funded by the Hat (no sponsors). We suggest a contribution £1.

Book Club

Vat and Fiddle

Enjoy reading? Want to share your thoughts about books or just listen to other people’s opinions? Then why not join us. Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month in the Visitors' Centre function room at the Vat and Fiddle pub. Grab yourself a drink (and/or food), then make your way to the room. PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR RSVP IF YOU CAN NO LONGER ATTEND. This month's book is The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison: 'Toni Morrison's debut novel immerses us in the tragic, torn lives of a poor black family - Pauline, Cholly, Sam and Pecola - in post-Depression 1940s Ohio. Unlovely and unloved, Pecola prays each night for blue eyes like those of her privileged white schoolfellows. At once intimate and expansive, unsparing in its truth-telling, The Bluest Eye shows how the past savagely defines the present.' Looking forward, the book for November is The Trial by Franz Kafka
