It’s time to get your blankets packed, a thermos of tea brewed and your thoughtful frowns at the ready…the BFU winter program is here!
Join us every Wednesday evening for the next six weeks of winter for thoughtful discussions, heated conversations and critical thought. We’ll be meeting each Wednesday at People’s Park in West End (157 Boundary Street) from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. No better way to warm up your winter than with critical theory and cups of tea in an inner-city park. Blankets and provocative ideas free.
