These are free for anyone to join. They will all be delivered via Zoom, with a maximum capacity of 300 participants. For consistency they are held on Wednesday evenings at 7.30 pm. Details including booking arangements are given below.

Where allowed, they are recorded and uploaded to YouTube. Previous rcordings are available to watch by selecting them from the Links on the right hand side of this page.

Participants are encouraged to join in with questions and discussion after the speaker has completed the lecture. u3a members are sent an invitation, well in advance via email, to book a place and, after confirmation of their booking by Eventbrite, they will be sent the login details to the Zoom meeting, three days before the talk.

SUN Study Days

The Sussex u3a Network (SUN) is a collaboration between the u3as in East and West Sussex, including Brighton & Hove. It organises additional activities, which may be beyond the resources of individual u3as or which are best provided on a collaborative basis, including a programme of very popular study days. SUN Study Days are regrettably postponed for 2022 for the moment and replaced with monthly Zoom talks, but it is hoped to resume the Study Days proper later in 2022.

SUN Free Zoom Talks Programme

SUN also organises a series of free Zoom talks which are detailed below along with booking arrangements. For more details of Zoom talks see the Sussex U3A Network site: Sun Events

‘Autism: its positive and negative sides’ given by Tanja Conway-Grim

In this talk, developed especially for Lewes u3a, we will look at what autism is, how it can affect people, what it means to be autistic, what the strengths are, the interesting facts around communication and how you can support the autistic people in your life. This will be an interactive presentation, so please come with an open mind and be prepared to participate through the chat. There will be time for questions afterwards. If you have anything specific you have always wanted to know about autism, but were too afraid to ask, please let me know by contacting Public Lecture Organiser and I will try to include it.

Tanja Conway-Grim is an experienced and qualified trainer, educator, mentor, and coach. She works in a variety of roles within the NHS, CCG, with charities, and Genius Within. Tanja works with the police on several projects around autism and neurodiversity.
