About Animus Talks
Animus is still in its infancy, launching earlier in 2011. It endeavours to organise talks on a broad spectrum of cultural subjects ranging from art to history to philosophy to religion to science. Each talk is a one off, and offers an opportunity to hear an expert in their field over a glass of wine, with no requirement to commit to a course or a term
