New ways of communicating science and collections


Do you believe that science communicators should inspire people?
Have you ever thought we need new ways to reach our audiences?
Would you say you’re curious? Are you willing to take risks?
And are you eager to meet more like-minded people to break new ground? 

In this 2-day digital workshop we will bring together up to 60 experts, thinkers and museum professionals.

You can be one of them!

Together with inspiring speakers we talk about new audiences, the power of objects and storytelling, the limits of openness and the question whether science and collections need to be translated to the public at all. 

We want to make it as entertaining as possible and go as far as to guarantee you an exciting digital encounter with fully analogue side effects.


The recordings of all session with closing Graphic Recording can be found on our YouTube Playlist.
