The call for event proposals and Award Lecture nominations for the British Science Festival 2016 are now open.
The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest-standing national event which connects people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists. Tens of thousands of people come together to celebrate the latest developments in science and to engage in open discussion about issues that affect our culture and society.
Each September the British Science Festival transforms a different UK city into a vibrant celebration of science, engineering and technology.
The British Science Festival will be returning to Swansea University from 6-9 September 2016. The Festival is a national platform to showcase cutting-edge science, celebrate the latest scientific developments and engage in open discussion about issues that affect our culture and society.
The British Science Association needs your help to curate a vibrant programme of events. Proposals should be aimed at non-specialist adults with a broad interest in science. Find out how to submit an event and nominate an Award Lecture on the British Science Festival website here: http://www.britishscienceassociation.org/british-science-festival
Specifically, they are looking for original, high quality science entertainments events for a wide range of audiences, including families, children, young adults, special interest groups and followers of the arts.
- Previous kinds of events have included:
- Workshops for adults and for families.
- Comedy, drama and musical shows.
- Sci-art collaborations
- Trips to places of interest in the local area
- Behind the scenes tours
- Science shows
Anyone can propose an event – individuals, researchers, organisations or academic institutions from all over the UK. Events can be talks, debates or discussions for a public audience.
The call for proposals will close on 25 March 2016 and the deadline for Award Lecture nominations is 4 March 2016.
