This page outlines events that I have been invited to take part in, and for future events those that I have confirmed. This list is not exhaustive, and especially does not reflect the invited events in the lead up to the eclipses of 2012 and 2015 where I was doing several events per day. I hope to add these in the future.
Make sure to also check out MY ORGANIZED EVENTS which highlight the many events that I have personally arranged, or facilitated with another organisation.
