timeout2014 timeOUT Talks

Our 9th year of timeOUT events promises to be another rousing success with diverse set of presentations. These events are hosted by the Halifax Public Libraries on the lower level of the Spring Garden Road Memorial Public Library (5381 Spring Garden Road). The space is physically accessible but does not have gender-inclusive washrooms.
All lectures begin at noon and officially end at 1 (though there is often time for discussion afterwards) and is completely free.
