What is it that makes us so scared of, and yet so attracted to, the living dead? Why is it that shambling or sprinting corpses still retain such relentless power?

Spaceship taking off into space

Fifty years after the first lunar landing again we find the exploration of space to be inviting.

Our quest to open new spaces that extend wider and further than ever before promises immense scientific and technological milestones to be met. It is also an occasion to converse about vexing and relatively unexplored socio-political issues which such discoveries entail. Does an expansion into space carve opportunities to improve or, rather, exacerbate our currently polarizing Earth-related physical and social difficulties?

Sheet music

After rapidly presenting how symmetries play an interesting role in nature, art, and science, François Bergeron and Members of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony will explain and illustrate how Bach mathematical symmetries in writing the scores for his music. This will partly be done via an interplay between a pictoral description of the symmetries of the scores, and a live rendition by musicians of the result for the audience.
