Weird, Wacky or Wonderful – Dundee Science Festival Event Proposals Wanted!
Published on 16 April 2015
From sport, exercise and food to wearable technology and music, Dundee Science Festival organisers are seeking fresh event ideas for this year’s Festival.
Now in its sixth year, the 16 day celebration, which will run from Saturday 31 October until Sunday 15 November 2015, promises fun, entertainment, inspiration and curiosity for all ages.
The Festival is coordinated by Dundee Science Centre.
Laura Wilkie, Festivals and Development Manager said, “Since its launch in 2010, Dundee Science Festival has grown significantly, not just in terms of the number of visitors we have engaged but in its programme offering and the sheer number and variety of partners involved. Dundee Science Festival 2014 was a great success with fantastic events across the whole city ranging from dining experiences and cocktail workshops to big bang experiments and bat box making. We’re now asking local businesses, charities, organisations and other individuals to take a look at what they do and think of ways of bringing their expertise, service or product into the public domain in a novel and engaging way that the public might not otherwise have access to, so that this year’s festival is our best yet!”
The Festival – currently Dundee’s second most well attended festival in the city ahead of the literary, film and arts festivals – brings together and supports more than 100 partners to deliver over 130 events in two weeks, reaching over 30,000 people.
Whether it’s an adventurous take on topics from music, health and space to energy and engineering, or themes linking science to art and culture, the Festival team is welcoming ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas, with any organisation or individual invited to submit an application to deliver an event.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 1 May 2015.
