This Week at Loughborough | 7 June
Bike Maintenance Workshop
7 June, 5.30 – 7.30pm, Public Workbench, Student Village
Learn how to take care of your bike in this informal workshop.
Cycling is a fantastic way of getting around and has seen a huge increase in popularity over lockdown. If you are interested in getting a bike or have one but want to become a little more competent with it, then come along to this workshop.
We will look at the basics of maintaining the bike but also highlight key items that every bike owner should own to enhance their safety. We will also show you what you can do to maintain your bike.
Please bring your bike and, if you have them, tyre removal levers for COVID-safe practices. Find out more on the events page.
Book Club: The Good Immigrant by Nikesh Shukla
8 June, 12.30 – 1.30pm, Online
Join our regular Book Club for an online discussion of The Good Immigrant by Nikesh Shukla.
Inspired by discussion around why society appears to deem people of colour as bad immigrants – job stealers, benefit scroungers, undeserving refugees – until, by winning Olympic races or baking good cakes, or being conscientious doctors, they cross over and become good immigrants, editor Nikesh Shukla has compiled a collection of essays that are poignant, challenging, angry, humorous, heartbreaking, polemic, weary and – most importantly – real. Find out more on the events page.
DRN Temporal Drawing: Queer Traces
9 June, 11am – 12.30pm, Online
