Take your research to Einstein's Garden at the Green Man Festival, deadline 15 April
1 April 2019
Public Engagement - opportunity
Einstein’s Garden is Green Man music festival's area of science and nature. Each year they curate a line up which fuses together performance, art, music and public engagement with research and brings science and the environment to life in fun and unusual ways.
This year's festival takes place 15-18 August.
They're on the lookout for research groups and scientific organisations that would like to bring a creative engagement stall to Einstein’s Garden with the aim of engaging festival audiences with science in fun and unusual ways.
Stalls can explore fundamental scientific ideas or phenomena, the process of science or current scientific research. It is essential that stalls include as much interactivity and participation as possible for festival goers and that they embody the creative and playful spirit of Einstein’s Garden.
I've taken public engagement stalls to two previous festivals so if you're looking for advice or a sounding board, just get in touch.
Deadline for applications will be noon 15th April 2018. Any queries regarding the application should be directed towards firstname.lastname@example.org
