The Boring Conference, an annual conference devoted to the ordinary and the everyday – and now in its seventh year – is coming soon on 6th May.
The Boring Conference champions the mundane. That’s something we all know quite a lot about. Talks this year include:
Mid 20th century Danish public information films.
How to fold each broadsheet in a confined space in order to do the crossword.
Music and knitting patterns co-authored by microbes.
An on-stage ironing demonstration
Previous Boring conferences have covered topics as diverse as ‘the sounds of vending machines’, ‘a taxonomy of sneezes’, ‘hot air dryers’ and ‘East German pedestrian signals’.
Doors open at 10am for a 10.30 start on May 6th. Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL.
