If you’re studying from home, don’t worry, as you can take part in many of the activities online.

Get involved

From skills sessions, public lectures and careers workshops to guided walks, ‘give it a go’ sessions and creative ‘crafternoons’ – take this time to focus on your wellbeing while safely connecting with your peers, with our community and with campus.

All in-person events have been risk assessed as COVID-safe, however it is equally important that all attendees adhere to current public health guidelines to keep everyone safe. Find out more about on-campus safety measures, including testing requirements on our COVID Safety hub.

Lunchtime Concert Series: ‘Summer Tunes’ with the Solem Quartet
Wednesday 21 April 2021 | 13:15 - 14:15

Arts & Culture

Performance

Lativan composer Pēteris Vasks’ String Quartet no. 2 Vasaras dziedājumi, or ‘Summer Tunes’, is a paean to the natural world. Vasks has said, “I experience God and pray to him in the forest, on the seashore, everywhere, because the world as God created it is so beautiful.” The work is in three movements: the first, ‘Coming into Bloom’, is introduced in a subdued and flowing manner until the music settles. The second movement, ‘Birds’ – with its free imitations of birdsong – ranks among the most elaborate of Vasks’ compositions. The third movement, ‘Elegy’, ushers in autumnal resignation. University of Liverpool Ensemble-in-Residence the Solem Quartet have been working directly with the composer on the preparation for this performance. Recorded in The Conway Hall, London. This concert recording will be available from 13.15 on this page, Facebook and YouTube.

Performance

 

Improv Night - with Emma Bird

"Connecting Through Play"

Improvisation means making up scenes and conversations on the fly, without a script.

It is a non-judgmental, positive form of play and creativity, underpinned by fundamental principles that help you spontaneously create.

Feelings of being in a ‘flow state’ are reported by improvisers across a wide range of improvisational art forms, such as jazz, dance, rap as well as improv comedy.

The principles of Listen, Agree & Contribute are applicable wider than that of a performance art form, and can impact positively on many aspects of one's life.

In this one hour workshop you will participate in improv exercises in an atmosphere of safety and support - and lots of fun! Followed by a Q&A with Emma Bird, Creative Director of Liverpool Comedy Improv.

Lunchtime Concert Series: Open Circuit - Jonathan Aasgaard (cello)
Wednesday 28 April 2021 | 13:15 - 14:15

Arts & Culture

Performance

Jonathan Aasgaard, principal cellist of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and John Wilson Orchestras, performs solo cello repertoire that straddles both sides of the Atlantic. American composer George Crumb wrote his solo sonata in 1955 whilst still a student and the work is less experimental than his later compositions. Ben Hackbarth, Head of Composition at the University of Liverpool, studied composition with renowned American composer Roger Reynolds. Hackbarth’s Liquid Studies explore an imagined sonic physics based on the behaviour of fluids. Benjamin Britten’s Suite no. 1, premiered a decade after Crumb’s solo sonata, is the first of three suites modelled on Bach and dedicated to Mstislav Rostropovich. This concert recording will be available from 13.15 on this page, Facebook and YouTube.

Persuasive Technology for Health and Wellness
Wednesday 28 April 2021 | 14:00 - 15:00

Science & Clinical

Webinar

Advances in technology offer many opportunities to strategically design interactive systems that aid and motivate people toward behaviours and actions that are beneficial for them and their communities. Avoiding behaviours that pose health risks and promoting a healthy lifestyle can be facilitated by Persuasive Technologies (PTs). PTs are interactive systems designed to motivate desired behaviour and attitude change. It is well-established that PT interventions are effective tools for promoting health and wellness.

In this talk, the speaker will share ways of designing PT interventions to promote health and wellness among target populations. Firstly the speaker will show ways that PT interventions can be tailored to specific populations, individuals, or health conditions in order to increase their effectiveness at achieving desired outcomes such as increased utilization, adherence, motivation, and improved health.

The speaker will then provide some examples to show that tailored PT interventions are more effective than the one-size-fits-all approach across various health behaviour contexts (e.g., promoting healthy eating, physical activity, discouraging risky sexual behaviour) and cultural groups (e.g., people from Western culture and people from Africa).

Music and the ‘sweet science’ of boxing

Music features prominently in the training and practice of sport, enhancing athletic performances and in media representations of competitive events. Adding an original perspective, Dr Simran Singh – Leverhulme Early Career Fellow with the Department of Music - presents ethnographic research conducted amongst elite professional and amateur boxers and kick-boxers in London. She compares how sporting and musical vocabularies, such as rhythm, groove and flow, are used and fused to identify, articulate and enjoy the sweet science of boxing practice.

The lecture will be followed by a live Q&A session. £0 FREE to book.

‘Talking about my Generation:’ How to work, communicate and get on with people from other generations (and that includes relatives!)

This unique workshop, delivered by Dr Paul Redmond, (Director of Student Experience and Enhancement at the University of Liverpool. Writer, TEDx speaker and researcher)

Currently, there are at least five generations in the world: they work together, study together, live together. The problem is, not only does each of these generations view the world in its own generationally specific way, it communicates using its own unique generational ‘language.’ 

The aim of this session is to give you a user’s guide to each of the five generations – and that includes your own. You will learn how to communicate effectively with other generations, how to make the most of your own generational characteristics, and discover why for some generations, punctuation is becoming such a divisive issue!

Public Lecture: Moral Creatures - Shaping the World Through Human Images
Wednesday 5 May 2021 | 17:30 - 19:00

Arts & Culture

Talk/Q&A

Moral creatures: shaping the world through human images

The philosopher and novelist, Iris Murdoch, wrote: ‘Man is a creature that makes pictures of himself and then comes to resemble the picture’. Literature, poetry, art and philosophy are full of powerful images. So too is real life and propaganda. Dr Rachael Wiseman, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy looks at the moral implications of human image making. How have images of the human offered by poets and philosophers of the past shaped human life today? How do we know which pictures to copy and which to eschew? What sort of images do we need now if we are to become the sort of creatures who can navigate the moral, political and technological environment of the twenty-first century?

The lecture will be followed by a live Q&A session. £0 FREE to book.

This lecture is the fourth in the University of Liverpool's 2021 Series of Public Lectures in the Arts on the theme of WORD - IMAGE - POWER.

Give it a Go

We believe all students, regardless of discipline, should get to learn about sustainability during their time at Liverpool. Facilitated by SOS-UK, NUS' sustainability charity, this training gives you an unmissable chance to connect sustainability with your curriculum.
The training will explore where sustainability currently features in your course, using the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the results, we will be able to identify the gaps where sustainability in the curriculum can be improved.
The Guild hopes to support students to push for further inclusion of sustainability in their courses right across the university.
How much time will you have to commit?
The training will last 2 hours and then we ask for a commitment of minimum 1 hour following the training, however it is really dependent on how much time you have on your hands and would like to commit.

Thanks to The Beatles, Liverpool and Music are synonymous. It’s an association with deep roots, for the city has a rich and diverse music history that stretches back to the 18th century and the city’s development as one of the world’s great maritime ports – right the way to Merseybeat in the 1960s and our status as a UNESCO City of Music in 2016.

To celebrate all this great musical city has to offer, our Institute of Popular Music have developed two walking trails to discover the very best of Liverpool’s musical heritage.

Trail 1: The South Liverpool Trail

Running from Penny Lane to Lark Lane, on this trail you’ll discover more about The Beatles, festivals that run from Sefton Park and see the pub that was once home to Freddie Mercury.

Download Trail 1 here.

Starting at Cains Brewery and culminating at the Pier Head, spend an afternoon walking this city centre trail to find out more about the many diverse musical acts and styles that Liverpool has been home to.

There are also Vox Pops going beyond the constitutional question by asking people from across the island of Ireland: “What type of society do you want?” The site will grow as more political and civic voices from across these islands will be added. 
Here is a flavour of what the site hosts already:

We look forward to having this very conversation at The Institute of Irish Studies and across these islands post-pandemic.
Welcome to the only dedicated site that includes both pro-union and pro-unity perspectives side-by-side.

Best Wishes,

Prof Peter Shirlow FAcSS
Director, The Institute of Irish Studies
