UKSFN conference 2018

09 Oct 2018 12:35 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The UK science festival ecosystem is diverse and constantly evolving, but we rarely take the time to celebrate what we have achieved or to look ahead to some of the challenges and opportunities for the sector. This is where the UK Science Festivals Network come in - they bring together science festivals and non-science festivals with scientific content to consider the highs, lows and future of festival organisation and management.

Following the success of the first UKSFN conference in Edinburgh last year, the UK Science Festivals Network are re-lighting the fire again, this time in Swansea on 21st November. Join them to discuss best practice in diversifying audiences and speakers, workshop new approaches to programming and learn what else is happening beyond the UK, amongst other topics. Most importantly, there will be plenty of opportunities to network and socialise with other conference attendees - if only it serves to reassure you that you're not alone in this crazy little science engagement bubble!

Hosted by the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. Please arrive at 9.30 for a 10.15 start, the day will end at 17.15. Delegates are also invited to a drinks reception from 17.15 onwards. The venue will not be open before 9.30 so do bear that in mind.
