Public Engagement - training
Talking Maths in Public is a conference for people who work in or otherwise participate in communicating mathematics to the public. There will be two days of workshops, talks and more, and is available to attend in person or online.
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 and 2021 (online) 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.
Topics in the programme include:
- Everyday maths
- Disability awareness training
- video production and zine making skills workshops
- Audience research workshop
- Inspiration from maths engagement projects
- Translating science communication research into practice
- Mathematical art
- Discussions on: maths outreach, diversity, maths communication as a cultural endeavour and careers in maths communication
Plus social and networking opportunities.
The cost to attend is £125 for the full three day programme, and there are bursaries available.
Remote tickets cost £30.
The event is taking place in the Herschel building at the University of Newcastle.
