Feb 15 @ 4:30 pm – 6:45 pm
Edinburgh Medical School: Let’s talk about health: Breast cancer; the advent of personalised medicine @ Queen's Medical Research Institute | Scotland | United Kingdom

“Let’s Talk About Health” is all about advancing our knowledge of health and what goes wrong in disease. Join us to hear about new research in our University that is increasing our understanding of diseases and providing new advances in treatment. Guests will be able to talk to our young scientists about their research, and S4 and S5 pupils will have an opportunity to tour our labs before the talks. We look forward to seeing you there!

Professor Karen Chapman

University/BHF Centre for Cardiovascular Science

Most people associate breast cancer with women. However, men can also be affected. Currently, 1 in 8 women in the UK will be affected by breast cancer during their lifetime. Huge steps have been made in understanding some of the complexities underpinning this disease and developing increasingly effective treatment strategies. This started here in Scotland, with Beatson’s discovery that in some women, removal of the ovaries can shrink tumours. Join us to hear about some of the key advances that have led to over 85% of women now living more than 5 years after diagnosis of breast cancer. We will explore exciting research aimed at developing new treatment strategies, that are personalised to the individual patient’s cancer, to maximise treatment effectiveness and limit unpleasant side-effects.

Speakers

Dr Helen Creedon, and Professor Val Brunton, Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre, The University of Edinburgh

Doors open 4.30pm with teas and coffees available.

Refreshments available after event.

About Film: Discussion and Screening @ The Banshee Labyrinth
Mar 2 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
About Film: Discussion and Screening @ The Banshee Labyrinth | Scotland | United Kingdom

An Edinburgh based film club, our aim is to deliver an inclusive and fun film event that gives film enthusiast the chance to deepen their film studies knowledge. Whether you’re a complete beginner, a student, or even a film theory lecturer, we know you’ll get something out of About Film.

Every month a film is shown, followed by a discussion; this discussion is focussed on a specific film studies topic. But don’t worry, no prior knowledge is needed. Technical jargon is avoided or demystified, and a friendly atmosphere promoted, while we tackle some of the debates in film. The aim is to try and learn from each other in a mutually beneficial exchange of ideas, as opposed to simply listening to one person rabbit on. About Film is not here to give you a lecture or tell you how to think!

The events are loosely grouped together into courses. A course spans over five or six events that have both a common theme and shared learning outcomes. For example, across the Autumn/Winter 2016 course there will be a focus on issues around authorship and originality in film. There is also the ambition to run a course of About Film as a free accredited course that is open to anyone who wants to take part.

Our events are always free and un-ticketed, they take place on the first Thursday of the month and start at 7pm (typically ending at 10pm). You’ll find us in the cinema room at The Banshee Labyrinth on Niddry Street, Edinburgh.

Mark Wallinger: Artist’s Talk @ The Fruitmarket Gallery
Mar 4 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Mark Wallinger: Artist's Talk @ The Fruitmarket Gallery | Scotland | United Kingdom

Mark Wallinger will be in conversation with The Fruitmarket Gallery director, Fiona Bradley about his practice and his exhibition, in two parts which runs at The Fruitmarket Gallery and Dundee Contemporary Arts from 4 March – 4 June.

Known for a practice as stylistically diverse as it is politically engaged, Mark Wallinger creates work that encompasses painting, sculpture, photography, film, installation, performance and public art.

This exhibition, presented in two parts, one at The Fruitmarket Gallery and the other at Dundee Contemporary Arts, has been brought together in the context of his newest body of work, the id Paintings. A selection from this series of vast paintings, each 360cm high (twice Wallinger’s height) and 180cm wide (his height again, and also the extent of his reach with both arms outstretched) is on show in each part of the exhibition.

These paintings bring identity into focus as a recurring theme within Wallinger’s practice. Painted by hand (and simultaneously by each hand, the left mirroring the right) they bridge image and action. They move his way of working, as Wallinger has said, from ‘painting ‘I’s’ to ‘I paint’.

The standing figure (the subject who stands – and stands up – for something) is one of the most powerful ways in which Wallinger explores identity. This exhibition brings together several such figures, including the bear of Sleeper and the myriad ‘I’s of the Self Portrait paintings. It also moves beyond the standing figure to look at the importance of naming, marking and symmetry in the artist’s work.

The aim is to try and learn from each other in a mutually beneficial exchange of ideas, as opposed to simply listening to one person rabbit on. About Film is not here to give you a lecture or tell you how to think!

The events are loosely grouped together into courses. A course spans over five or six events that have both a common theme and shared learning outcomes. For example, across the Autumn/Winter 2016 course there will be a focus on issues around authorship and originality in film. There is also the ambition to run a course of About Film as a free accredited course that is open to anyone who wants to take part.

Our events are always free and un-ticketed, they take place on the first Thursday of the month and start at 7pm (typically ending at 10pm). You’ll find us in the cinema room at The Banshee Labyrinth on Niddry Street, Edinburgh.

Self activation and flow – Stage 1 in Setting Purposeful Life direction by Leon Paterson

In the first of a series of 4 events we will explore the first stage in self activation and setting purposeful life direction. You will begin to develop skills in becoming more sensitive to your sense of things going ok/not ok (self supervising). You will learn how to better manage your activated flow through life. And how to best respond to upset by taking the time to pay careful attention to your feelings.

 

What you will learn –

Understanding how flow and self managing work

Becoming more sensitive and noticing feelings

Becoming better at managing your feelings

Feelings as an alarm – the usefulness of uncomfortable feelings

Managing the discomfort – responding appropriately

Things going ok/not ok – how we supervise and track ourselves through life

Feelings about feelings – introduction into second level emotional responses

Mind management workshop – Learn and explore the realistic benefits of mindfulness, meditation and self hypnosis for managing your mind.by Leon Paterson

According to research we are exposed to over 5000 adverts a day – social media, billboards, 24 hour news all compete for our attention. Many people’s thoughts are passively following where their attention leads. This is because they have learned to respond almost automatically to the world.

Yet most people are able to concentrate their attention effortlessly in situations that demand it. What enables this to be achieved is party down to the context. A working environment for example will activate you into becoming focused on what’s important… your work! What is more challenging is managing your attention independently.

We have incredible purposeful minds that alert us to things that seem important. They just might not be important at that particular moment. Going over and over an argument you had, or repeatedly replaying something you regret doing. Are examples of unwanted thoughts that can seem automatic.

Research demonstrates people who are better able to manage their thoughts and attention have a better quality of life, are more in control of their emotions, and have a range of ways to view the same situation. The good news is these are skills that everybody can learn and develop. And in this highly practical introduction you will learn how to apply mind management skills for your own personal development.
