Beltane Breakfasts and Twilights are informal meetings where people from Edinburgh’s universities, and people who want to work with them, can come to find out more and share information about specific public engagement topics. At this Beltane Twilight, we’ll be hearing and discussing the thoughts of Thomas Bak on the similarities between public engagement and teaching.

Now in its sixth year, CoDI has been running at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2013.
