Talking Maths in Public is a conference which runs in the UK every two years, for people who work in, or otherwise participate in, communicating mathematics to the public. The event is independently organised, and funded by ticket sales and grants from mathematical institutions. Our events in 2017, 2019, 2021 (online) and 2023 all fully sold out and were highly rated by attendees.
TMiP is run by an independent committee of people who work in different areas of maths communication, and the event includes workshops provided by expert guests, discussions on varied topics, networking sessions and chances to share ideas and showcase projects.
If you're a math communicator based in the USA, the Math Communications network is attempting to set up a new equivalent organisation, inspired by TMiP.
Talking Maths in Public is proud to be partners with the MEGA Grant, a bursary scheme for mathematical engagement activities organised by Stand-up Mathematician Matt Parker. Applications for the next MEGA Grant will open in 2025, and the winner announced at the 2025 TMiP Conference.
