Barcamp – Alternative Events in Science Communication – Minsk – October 3rd-06th


ONLINE APPLICATION (google forms link)
In October, Brains and Bridges e.V. and the European College for Liberal Arts will host a Barcamp in cooperation with the Center for Fine Arts and Media „New Culture Initiative“.
As participants we invite young professionals from Belarus,
Germany, Russia and Ukraine with:

• strong interest in alternative events in science communication

• background in journalism, science or (alternative scientific) events

• university degree

• fluent command of English (Barcamp will be held in English)
to exchange experiences, to network on international level and to cooperate. Participants will enable each other to realise new formats.

The Barcamp is supported by the German Ministry of Foreign Affair.

Modern scientific events seek to bring research out of the ivory tower into the public spotlight. While some formats create a great deal of enthusiasm and have become established features of cultural life, others quickly disappear.

Participants will determine both the content and structure of the three-day event. They will schedule sessions, give presentations, and share their experiences. Every participant will provide some kind of input to the barcamp.

In the evenings, we will gain hands-on experience and organize three different categories of events, e.g. a Science Slam or a Science Bar Hopping-Tour. Your suggestions will be taken into account!

Travelling expenses will be covered.
