Public Engagement - opportunity
The British Science Festival 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. The festival takes place 7-10 September 2023 in Exeter.
The British Science Festival are now accepting event proposals for the British Science Festival 2023.
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.
They anticipate that the vast majority of events in the 2023 programme will use a range of participatory formats, besides talks and lecture-style events, and will take place outside of a traditional lecture-theatre setting.
The Festival will take place in Exeter from Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 September 2023 and will be hosted by the University of Exeter.
The deadline for this Open Call applications is 9am (GMT) on 20 February 2023.
Note that expenses and costs are not covered - you will need to seek this funding from other sources. Your event will need to be free to attend.
