Recent illustrated talks

Recent illustrated talks

FoSMAG's monthly illustrated talks are open to all. We invite interesting and expert speakers who deliver illustrated talks on culture, heritage and the arts. 

We've recently begun recording talks and hosting them online, for the benefit of members who can't attend in person. We periodically circulate a list of available talks and access details via email to all current FoSMAG members.

Our talks cover a wide range of local, national and international themes. Titles and speakers for the past two years are listed below.
