The call for proposals is now open for this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Science, which will run between the 7th and 14th November. Funding of up to £1500 is available for the Festival , and with Bournemouth University becoming an official partner of the Festival, now is the time to start thinking about submitting a proposal if you wish to be involved in 2015.
If you’re struggling for inspiration for what type of event you can submit for this year, below you can find the second in a series of blog posts which will highlight popular events from previous years of the Festival.
‘The Big Bubble? Examining London’s Property Bonanza’ was an event which took place during the 2014 Festival in London. This was a panel discussion which aimed to inform the general public about the factors driving London’s property market to new peaks, and of the ways that policy and politics might address the negative impacts of this trend.
Panel discussions are often a very popular event type in attracting the general public. As well as the success that ‘The Big Bubble’ had at the ESRC Festival in 2014, the British Science Festival in 2015 also presented panel sessions which proved to generate a high number of attendees at events.
Are you inspired to run an event similar to ‘The Big Bubble’ at this year’s ESRC Festival?
