Organisation Participation Form - Science in the City 2021
For ten 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 this 2020'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 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 next 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! (Weekend starting 24th September 2021)
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.
