Your committee met in person on July 1st. A joint committee report and other AGM papers have been sent to members. These include details of two short-term events to which members and friends are invited and which will restart our programme of activities:
A lunch at the Hôtel de Bastard in Lectoure (32) on August 19th at 12 for 12:30.
Our AGM at l’Atelier in Issigeac (24) on September 16th.
Member Christopher Pike has alerted us to these concerts. They are devoted to the Occitan and Catalan mediterranean cultures and take place in rural locations with a rich roman, medieval and southern gothic heritage. Use the link above to see the programme.
OUS Paris invites members to this Zoom talk by Professor Michael Spitzer on June 10th:
You may not consider yourself a “musician” ; Michael SPITZER would like to suggest otherwise. What if music-making were an inherently human component of our life on earth, an overlooked part of our origin story embedded in us whether we recognise it or not ?
The committee will be meeting next week to plan the year ahead as best it can. In the meantime, in order to keep emails to the minimum, this post addresses two subjects:
Firstly, our Committee Member Marion Tempé is clearing out the art books on the list below. She would like to offer them to anyone who is interested. Marion resides in the Lot-et-Garonne. You can contact her via info@ousswfrance.
The latest directory which is now available in pdf format lists the many associations in the British community here in France and also contains information relevant to Brexit and a good deal of other useful information. It is available on request from email@example.com.
We’re delighted to bring Meeting Minds to the world digitally this year – from 7-12 September – and we hope you can join us for a FREE programme of events!
Each day, join us for a wealth of live and recorded content from all around the University including panel discussions, Q&As, virtual tours, musical performances and much more!
Why not also consider connecting and socialising with fellow group volunteers during the event on the main channel on our My Oxford Network platform? (Please note, you will need to register for My Oxford Network beforehand)
The event is completely FREE! All you need to do is register your interest here (you will need your Oxford Alumni Number) to receive more information and links to the full programme.
We will also be organising a series of online forums for group volunteers later in the year and will send out details of these once they are finalised.
As usual, if you have any questions, please email us.
