Making a difference to people and society around us lies at the heart of the work we do across our hugely diverse range of disciplines. Cherishing the ethos on which we were founded in 1838, public engagement is a key component of our College’s identity. Then as now, our sites are a place where members of the public can come to enjoy evening lectures or classes, see a show at the UK’s first cinema, or witness demonstrations of seemingly magic new technologies. Today, we show-case the way our work makes a difference through weekly blogposts, through our own Different Conversations podcast series, and through our annual Difference Festival, a week-long engagement with the public in lectures, movies, performance, exhibitions and discussions.
