What we do

Northumberland Learning Connection, based in Cobourg and Port Hope, Ontario, is more than a lecture series: it offers a chance to connect with the community, meet new people and eminent speakers, broaden your knowledge, and exchange ideas in a local setting.

Each spring and fall, we hold a weekly series of talks and discussions. We bring the experts, often world-renowned, and you bring your curiosity. The topics are varied but always compelling, drawing from science, the arts, history and the humanities.
