Ragged Talks

Skeptics in the pub

Ragged events are about getting together in social spaces, putting our feet up, breaking bread, and enjoying learning something new.

Anyone can do a talk, you just have to love your subject.  You can talk on any subject, at any level; the point here is people animate their subject when they care about it.  It is also good to learn through teaching and discussing.  The content has to fit within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  The Ragged spaces are a-religious, a-political, and a-corporate; in as much as these institutions of Politics, Religion and Corporacy occupy other primary areas of life.
