Saturday, 01 September 2018 - Sunday, 30 September 2018

< Previous Month | Next Month >

Every week staff, students and members of the local community come together to practice Mindfulness i.e. present moment awareness, without judgement. 

 Sessions are free and led by staff, students and members of the community who have been practicing meditation for many years, though are not necessarily teachers of Mindfulness.  So while these sessions do not include instruction in Mindfulness, they are suitable for people with no previous knowledge of Mindfulness as well as those who have been practising for many years. 

 

Together we share a space in the moment, without judgement!  Sessions tend to follow a similar format, starting with a guided body scan, followed by a short break and then a silent meditation.

On Thursday evenings, mindfulness practitioners volunteer to share their Mindful Journeys and the role Mindful practice plays in their lives. Speakers include people who work, study, teach and research at NUI Galway and other universities, as well as practitioners from industry and public service around the world. 

Each Thursday will include a shared meditation practice, a sharing of knowledge and experiences, and a discussion between 5:10 pm and ending at 5:50pm, with the option to remain afterwards for further discussion. See http://www.nuigalway.ie/mindfulway/practice/ for details!

 Interested in presenting?  If yes, please send your bio, photo, a proposed title for your session along with a brief description to ann.t.walsh@nuigalway.ie, along with dates (Thursdays!) that would suit you to present!

Mindful Way @ NUI Galway

 This conference will gather senior policymakers, public servants, academics, and other experts to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the policy-making process in Ireland with a view to suggesting how the quality of policy-making might be improved. Although much analytical attention has been paid to the effects of public policies in Ireland and to the macroeconomic context in which they are set, there has been very little analysis of the policy-making process: How policies are conceived, designed, implemented, communicated, and reviewed. This conference is an attempt to address this gap. The conference will also feature the launch of a new Whitaker Institute report by economist Jim O’Leary on water charges and the local property tax. 

This conference is aimed at a general audience and will appeal to everyone with an interest in how public policy is made in Ireland. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/how-not-to-do-public-policy-tickets-48552806752

NUI Galway : Colours Street Theatre Company – The Squares

A Colours Street Theatre production written and performed by Galway native James Fleming. This performance tells the story of an exhibition of artists, each trying to exist in a modern world of territorial gain. The show mixes satirical social commentary with historical facts in a new style of revolutionary theatre. This new show is the performer’s sixth solo show.

Running time 50 minutes, no interval

Note: The performance is strictly adults only

Located outside of the college bar, James Fleming’s sculpture titled ‘Skelascope’ is commissioned by the NUI Galway Arts Office. It will be on display from 11am to 9pm.“The ‘Skelascope’ is a giant sculpture made from plastic waste pipe materials which stare out into space in an attempt to try and locate off the planet artist. The artists must be found as they are the only creatures who can save the universe from future destruction.”

The Irish Centre for Human Rights invites you to a lunchtime Seminar 

“We Are All Witnesses". A Talk by Anne Driscoll, US Fulbright Scholar, on Wrongful Convictions”

Date: Monday 24th September at 1pm 

Venue: Seminar Room, Irish Centre of Human Rights, NUI, Galway

Wrongful convictions happen in every jurisdiction in the world. Very often, the people who are most likely to be wrongfully convicted are those who are marginalized in some way – by race, ethnicity, language, economics, or education. There are now 68 innocence projects worldwide. They are all part of a global innocence movement, arguably one of the newest human rights issues we face – and one we didn’t even know existed until the late 1980s when DNA evidence began to be used in the courts. And those people on the frontlines of the innocence movement include lawyers, journalists, human rights activists and humanitarians, among others. One of them is Anne Driscoll, a journalist and US Fulbright Scholar who is at NUIG this year to establish a fledgling Innocence Project here and she will be speaking about all this and more on Monday, 24 September 2018 at 1pm at the Irish Centre for Human Rights.

All Welcome!

                                                   Venue: Irish Center for Human Rights, School of Law, NUI Galway

 About the seminar: The Russian law regulating “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors” instituted in 2013 followed legislation that targeted independent NGOs (so called “foreign agents”) passed one year earlier. These laws legitimized anti-Western discourses common in the Cold War period, with a particular focus on homophobia, causing a wave of violence resulting in hate crimes (bashing, abuse, homicide) against people identified as lesbians, gay men or transgender, or in a broader sense as ‘liberals”.
