After a pause of four years Personal Views is back. The last time I spoke about it in public – after Ian Anderson's talk in 2008 – I said that the series was finished and that I was planning a new, different type of series. And this was my intention. Earlier this year whilst planning a new set of talks it become clear through conversations I had that creating a new sereis with a new name would be wasting a hard earned legacy. So I've kept the name although the format will be different. I'm asking each speaker to divide their talk into three distinct sections using three titles which I'm asking them to include – the same titles for each speaker. Hopefully series six will be the start of a new cycle carrying on over the next few years. Some of the speakers will be new to the series but some are ones I'm asking back. As usual they will take place in the auditorium in ESAD, always on a Friday at 17h00. Hope to see you there. The poster is designed under the influence of my soft spot for theatre/vaudeville posters.
