Following on from our very successful visits to Kilkenny, Galway and Limerick in 2018, the HAI will continue to bring our Sunday Meetings to different towns and cities around Ireland, and on Sunday February 3rd, the Cork Humanists group will host a gathering at the Imperial Hotel in Cork City at 14.00.
We have two exciting speakers lined up:
Dr. Coleen Jones, director of Cork Psychotherapy and Counselling Centre, and member of Irish Association of Humanistic & Intergrative Psychotherapy, will discuss “Thinking in a Modern Age” and there will be an opportunity for a Q&A session after she delivers her talk.
Afterwards, Catriona Twomey, director of Cork Penny Dinners, will speak about the history and daily life of running one of Ireland’s oldest charities. Cork Penny Dinners has been the main focus of the charitable work of Cork Humanists. A Q&A will follow this talk, also.
Prior to this, we will gather at the Crawford Art Gallery for a guided tour of ‘Earth Wind & Fire, Made in Cork’, an exceptionally interesting contemporary exhibition of sculpure from Cork artists. There will be an opportunity to raise caffeine levels and have a light lunch at the Gallery’s Coffee Shop before moving to the Imperial Hotel nearby. (There are also plenty of cafes in the surrounding area).
