We meet every second Wednesday of the month 7-9pm in Cathcart Baptist Church

Micro Talks at the Couper

Cathcart and District Community Council are delighted to bring local people together in our library hub, to listen to speakers, whilst enjoying a hot drink in a warm and friendly environment.

Based on the hugely successful Micro Talks West Kilbride, we’re delighted to launch Micro Talks Cathcart!

MicroTalks involve a range of speakers presenting 20 slides for 20 seconds each (6min 40Seconds total). The result is an eclectic, fast moving, engaging, sometimes amusing, always thought-provoking event.

We’re really excited to announce the lineup of speakers for Saturday 27 January 2024:

  • Mhairi Taylor – The power of quiet activism; how we saved the Couper Library
  • Frances Robertson – Rustles in the dark: local biodiversity
  • Tommy Petillo – Nightmare Italiano (Call the food Police!)
  • Yvonne McFadden – Selling the Suburban Dream: advertising Glasgow’s inter-war suburbs
  • Gary Birnie – Unlocking Motivation: The Driving Force Behind Physical Activity
  • Jessica Kerr – Stories of People and Trees – how music grew from the roots of tree stories

The event is free and everyone is welcome!

Saturday 27 January 2024 at 2pm
in The Couper Institute Library
84-86 Clarkston Rd, Cathcart, Glasgow G44 3DA
