Public Engagement - opportunity
The British Science Festival are now accepting event proposals for the 2022 Festival in Leicester, hosted by De Montfort University.
Open Call for proposals – Do you have an idea to engage public audiences with science and research?
The British Science Festival are now accepting event proposals for the 2022 Festival taking place between 13 and 17 September in Leicester, hosted by De Montfort University.
The Festival celebrates science in its broadest sense. They are looking for proposals from individuals, researchers, industry professionals, artists, writers, organisations, charities, academic institutions, and more.
Festival proposals should be aimed at non-specialist adults (16+) with a broad interest in science. They are looking for events that showcase cutting-edge science, celebrate the latest developments in science and technology and engage their audience in open discussion about relevant issues that affect culture and society.
They aim to programme a range of formats from talks to drop-in activities and creative content that challenges perceptions of what science is and can be.
The deadline for proposals is 17.00 on 14 February 2022.
