Gibraltar Cultural Services, working alongside playwright, actor, director, and teacher, Julian Felice, will be holding the GibTalks event on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at the John Mackintosh Hall. The idea is styled on the very successful TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) series of talks (www.ted.com), GibTalks will see a range of local speakers deliver fifteen-minute talks on a broad spectrum of subjects with the aim of focusing on the anecdotal, the personal, and the light-hearted as opposed to heavy-going academics and agendas.

Dr Joseph Garcia

Sonia Golt

Nathan Payas
