Want to volunteer to help at this year's festival?
If you’ve ever been to Science in the City you will know that it isn’t your usual run of the mill festival. It is unique to Malta, bringing Science, Research and the Arts together. This year the festival will be a hybrid event, with both physical and online events, taking place across three days, 27th, 28th and 29th November 2020. This year’s festival will have limited real world events in Fort St Elmo with social distancing and the latest Covid-19 safety measures in place.
We need diligent volunteers to help our audience have an enjoyable and safe experience at the festival both for the limited physical events and the array of online material. We need people who enjoy photography and videography to help us document and promote the event (during and before the festival), others to help collect data from the visitors (both online and real world) to help us gauge our strengths and weaknesses (evaluation/research) and we need volunteers to guide people around the festival and maintain Covid-19 safety measures (ushers).
If you feel you can be one of these lovely people and want to join our ever growing family, we can guarantee an amazing time with lots of new friends and a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes. Training and certificates will be provided to all, so you will be well prepared for whatever task you choose.
Want to be a part of Malta’s biggest Science and Arts festival?
For eight years, Science in the City has been building bridges between researchers and artists to organise a night of wonder. Dazzling artworks, inspired by Malta’s most relevant research, have become synonymous with the festival’s magenta logo.
Every year we look for new and exciting ways to engage citizens with science and arts. If you would like to work with us and have ideas for interactive performances, art installations, science busking, puppet shows, theatre, hands-on activities or anything else, get in touch! We would love to help you bring your ideas to life. Each year we also take on a large number of volunteers who can get involved with anything from photography to the conduction of research and evaluation.
