In 2019, Science in the City will focus most of its activities on the theme The Science of YOU, celebrating each and every one of us.
We want to use various art forms to engage new audiences with scientific research projects.
On the night of the 27th September, Valletta will be transformed into a space celebrating research. We are interested in performances, music, theatre, plays, stand-up comedy, exhibitions and art installations that are interactive, captivate the public’s imagination and challenge their perspective of science.
We are also on the lookout for creative ways for researchers and students to communicate science to the public through innovative demonstrations, workshops, busking, quizzes, competitions, treasure hunts, tours, and possibly more.
