Gibraltar Cultural Services, working alongside playwright, actor, director, and teacher, Julian Felice, will be holding the GibTalks event on Saturday 11th February at the John Mackintosh Hall.
The idea is styled on the very successful TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) series of talks (www.ted.com), GibTalks will see a range of local speakers deliver fifteen-minute talks on a broad spectrum of subjects with the aim of focusing on the anecdotal, the personal, and the light-hearted as opposed to heavy-going academics and agendas.
The organisers have announced the following speakers who will represent a cross-section of the community and will help to make up a rich and varied programme:
Sir Peter Caruana QC
Henry & Priscilla Sacramento
Kaoula El Andaloussi
Stefano Blanca Sciacaluga
In addition to the invited guest speakers, four ten-minute slots have also been allocated to members of the public who will have the opportunity to speak to the audience about an issue close to their hearts. The three individuals are:
Sean Vincent Acris
Manar Ben Tahayekt
Tickets for the event will be on sale as from Tuesday 10th January 2017 from the John Mackintosh Hall reception and online on www.buytickets.gi. Tickets are priced at £5. Tickets will enable ticket-holders to pop in and out of the event as they please, during the course of the day.
