What’s On(line): Week 5

Providing you with entertainment for the upcoming week

And I as slowly begin to run out of strange pictures of myself, we move into Week 5 and that can only mean one thing; the next issue of What’s On(line) is out. Here’s what you can get up to this week:

Muse along to a brand-new online series

Airing daily at 2pm from the 17th – 30th May for free on the ADC YouTube channel, Musings follows the Muses – goddesses of the arts and proclaimers of heroes – as they navigate the online world, produce top-quality vlog content, and go through some epic drama.

It was created as an idea to bring students together and give them opportunities for creativity. And most excitingly, the show is interactive. You can provide ideas to the muses and even challenge them to a dance through their social accounts.

Show airs daily from the 17th to 30th May at 2pm. Watch it now at ADC’s YouTube channel. Participate in the show via Instagram, TikTok and Facebook @museings9

Question beliefs in a theological talk

During the current situation regarding COVID-19, many people have begun to think of religion a bit more; be in a positive or negative way. Hence, the Cambridge Christian Union has chosen to host a very interesting talk on their YouTube channel – “Is Prayer an Empty Comfort”. There will be a short 25-minute talk followed by a Q&A, so feel free to bring your questions along. The talk is suitable to anyone who ever has asked themselves theological questions.

The live stream will take place at 1pm on the 22nd May. Check out the event link for further details.

Test your Memelord level

This week, the theme of the Great Girtonian Kahoot is memes. And let’s be honest, with the lockdown in place, we have all become experts of online culture. But who is the best? Well, you’ll have to join the quiz to find out…

Quiz Takes Place on Saturday 23rd at 8pm. Visit the Facebook page for details.

Learn about a historical plague

If the ongoing modern plague is not enough for you, the Wolfson College will be hosting a talk on fighting the plague in Renaissance Italy. Professor John Henderson will focus on “the development of public health policies in seventeenth-century Tuscany within a wider Italian and European context. The aim is to go beyond traditional oppositions between rich and poor by examining the impact of regulations at the level of the neighbourhood, street and family.” This talk has particular relevance now as those original epidemics have served as models for the further outbreaks and shaped the future of medical and social policies.

Talk will take place on Tuesday 26th May from 6- 7pm. You can register via the Zoom link (Event Page)

And that’s it for this week. However, if you are organising an event you want featured, do not hesitate to contact me (hv275) and I shall try to feature it as soon as possible!
