Science in the City 2018: Call for Proposals

Science in the City, European Researchers’ Night, has established itself as one of Malta’s largest national festivals and the only science and arts festival hosted in Valletta. With over 24,000 visitors last year alone, it is a fantastic opportunity for scientists and artists to collaborate and get creative. Our objectives are listed in the appendix. We are a platform for art installations, exhibitions, music, comedy, theatre and the performing arts, which engage citizens with science. We’re looking forward to your participation.

In 2018, Science in the City will collaborate with the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Valletta 2018 Foundation. Two artists (or two groups of artists) are invited to participate in the 2018 edition from the University of Applied Arts Vienna, as well as one artist (or one group of artists) from the University of Malta. The project is supported by Valletta 2018. Our theme this year is Science in Culture. Proposals and participation outside this theme will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please get in touch before submission. 

Important Dates 

Deadline for proposal submission is by 23:59 5th March 2018. Applicants will be notified by 19th March 2018.
