Every month we will try and curate a list of events around Bristol (and perhaps, occasionally further afield) that we feel are related to the course, reflect the interests of the students on it, and/or pertain to emerging conversations in human geography.

The Rooms Festival on Silver Street.  5th-7th November.

A self-declared playground for new ideas, the Rooms festival invites us though its doors and into a series of fantastical, creative, and technological interactions. Reimagine our digital futures and experience the potential of technology to transform how we exist in the world.

Festival of the Future City. 16th-20th November.
