The Exchange Talks are our weekly series of public events in which members of our staff, academia and the professions share their research insights on art, society and the issues that matter to everyone.

Exchange Talks are free and open to anyone who has an interest in the performing arts and wants to hear new ideas. Most Exchange Talks take place in the Fyfe Lecture Theatre on Monday evening at 6pm.

RCS Staff and Students can access a back catalogue of Exchange Talks on a Portal Page

In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19, Exchange Talks are now being livestreamed directly into your home. You can view the schedule for the Exchange Talks Livestream below and register by clicking the link provided.
