Take your Research to Green Man Festival's Einstein's Garden, deadline 6 March
14 January 2020
Public Engagement - opportunity
Green Man's curious and wacky science engagement area, Einstein's Garden, is now open for applications for stalls and performances.
The Green Man music festival is a family-friendly festival that takes place in the Brecon Beacons each year, this year it'll be happening 20-23 August.
Einstein’s Garden is Green Man’s area for creative engagement with science, nature and technology. Each year the festival curates a lineup which fuses performance, art, music and research to bring the world around us and our questions about it to life in the most wacky and wonderful ways.
They're on the lookout for organisations, research groups, and any other science/nature/technology-minded folk that would like to bring a stall to Einstein’s Garden with the aim of engaging festival audiences with their work. Your stall will explore any aspect of science or tech research, nature, curiosity or questions about the world around us, which you’ll bring to life in a unique way to amaze and engage their audience of thousands.
Stalls should include as much interactivity and participation as possible. Rather than giving out leaflets or bringing roll-up banners, think about how your stall can be visually striking and offer an activity that will attract people within a festival environment.
More information about Einstein’s Garden and what they look for in collaborators can be found here.
The first round deadline for these applications will be at midnight on Friday 6th March 2020, applications submitted by this time will be considered first and advised of their outcome throughout March and early April 2020.
"We are searching for the weird, the wacky, and the wonderful so please don't let common sense or normality limit the ideas in your application!"
Stalls/installation applications are here. Scroll down to 'Create'.
Applications for Performances, Speakers, Walkabout, Bands, Workshops and anything else is here.
If you have any questions you can email the area coordinator, Sophie Perry.
