North America Lecture Tour, 9-25 March 2023


We are delighted to announce preliminary details for the Foundation's lecture tour programme in North America for March 2023. We look forward to seeing you at one of our locations. Please register early to ensure your place.

Whilst every effort is being made to ensure these workshops go ahead, we are aware that COVID might disrupt plans for in-person attendance. The Foundation along with the different host organisations are preparing contingencies so that if it becomes necessary these programmes will go ahead as virtual events, but crucially they will go ahead.
