The diary is now open for illustrated talks, live or by Zoom, for 2022-24.
There are four topics, which can be adapted for different audiences.

1. An Artist’s War: the Western Front through the eyes of an artist turned junior officer.

2. The creative collaborations of Alice and Morris Meredith Williams, from book illustrations and stained glass to the Scottish National War Memorial.

3. The evolution of Alice Meredith Williams, ARBS, as a designer and sculptor.

4. Her own woman: the characteristics, decisions and relationships that shaped Alice Meredith Williams’ career

How long is a talk? How long would you like it to be? Usually between 45 minutes and two hours.

When? Daytime or evening, weekdays or weekends.

How big does the audience need to be? 10 – 200

Live or by Zoom? Whichever suits you, but live talks allow for more interaction. For Zoom talks I send the organiser an invitation (a link) to forward to each member of the audience, a few days beforehand.
