Think Together Sheffield welcomes you to #PhiloFest, a week-long celebration of philosophical thinking. We’ve got a series of events running during the week of World Philosophy Day (18/11/21) which we thought you might be interested in.
#PhiloFest for Sheffield – Community Philosophy for anyone and everyone!

To end the week, come and join the circus on Saturday 20th November. Think Together Sheffield are hosting a community philosophical enquiry at the National Fairground and Circus Archive (University of Sheffield Library, Western Bank, S10 2TN).
What exactly is meant by the thrill of the circus and the fun of the fair? We won’t have a big top but it will be a fun and lively discussion, drawing on circus and fairground traditions in different cultures and from different perspectives.

Please come and explore the displays from 2pm before participating in the enquiry from 2.30-4.30pm.
