Did you know, your u3a can access new and interesting talks from speakers from across the u3a movement? The Speaker Swap initiative was successfully piloted in 2021 and is now expanding to include Art History talks.
 
u3a member Mike who has been involved with several speaker swaps says, "My group has been lucky enough to tune in with Zoom to a range of talks on topics from codes and cyphers to how medieval people protected their houses from evil spirits.
 
"As part of the project, it has been interesting to speak to people in other u3as and hear how they are coping with Covid and how they run their groups. There is now a healthy number of u3as taking part in the project, and I am hopeful that we will continue to be able to make use of the many talks which undoubtedly already exist across our organisation."
 
The initiative is now expanding to include Art History talks. Kicking things off is Catherine, Chair of Newcastle u3a Here are just a few of the talks she is offering to other u3a’s as part of this reciprocal arrangement:
 
• ‘The Woman Who Took Revenge’
• ‘Leonardo, would he have made a good u3a member?’
• 'Rembrandt and the Third Age’
• ‘The Bayeux Tapestry and Its Hidden Messages’
• ‘Tracing the history of fairy tales, partly through art’
• ‘Who Wears the Trousers?’
