Want to be a part of Malta’s biggest Science and Arts festival?
For nine years, Science in the City has been building bridges between researchers and artists to organise a night of wonder in Valletta, as part of European Researchers’ Night. With over 30,000 visitors every year, as well as 20,000 views during last year’s online festival, it is a fantastic opportunity for scientists and artists to collaborate and get creative. Every year we look for new and exciting ways to engage citizens with science and arts. Dazzling artworks, inspired by Malta’s most relevant research, have become synonymous with the festival’s magenta logo.
Science in the City 2021 - Sowing Seeds - 24-25th September
Science in the City 2020 was about Engaging, Empowering and Enabling citizens through science and the arts to equip citizens with creativity, innovation and critical thinking, introducing a spark of freedom and the promise of progress into the world of human action. For this year’s festival, we are expanding on that theme and ensuring that it takes root in our society: Science in the City 2021 – Sowing Seeds!
Sowing Seeds is more than just about introducing an element of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) among researchers and citizens. It’s about enabling citizens to take an active role in shaping their future. As always in Science in the City, we do it through the arts. RRI focuses on ensuring all citizens take responsibility for their future, and through the added element of citizen science, we hope to bring industry, government, citizens and researchers together to address the problems we face as a nation and as citizens of this world.
Volunteers - Get Involved
Each year, Science in the City recruits a large number of volunteers to help us bring the festival to life. This year is no exception! Our hybrid festival will provide an opportunity for enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers to help out in real-world or digital events.
Roles for volunteers range from research and evaluation, photography and videography, visitor management, and so much more.
