Lapworth LOGO P21 A1 copyLapworth Takeover – PGRs needed!

The public engagement team are looking for a small team of research students (masters or PhD) to co-design, organise and run a new public evening event involving academics and artists in the Lapworth Museum. You will be responsible for programming and budgeting for activities (with our support!) to help bring the museum and its exhibits alive for the public at our inaugural Lapworth Lates event. This event will draw inspiration from the “Dinosaurs in Popular Culture” exhibition beginning in July, however we will interpret this theme very broadly from multiple research perspectives.

The event, which is supported by Alumni Impact Fund, will run on Thursday 19th July. In addition to committing to design and organisation activities, you will also need to be available for around 4 planning/operations meetings between April and the event date. In order to register your interest, please email the team at engage@contacts.bham.ac.uk by Friday April 19th to tell us why you want to be involved and what you will bring to the team (200 words max). No subject specific knowledge required and we actively encourage students from all Colleges to apply, no matter what subject you research.

Academics: In the coming weeks we will also be looking for researchers who would like to carry out public engagement activities at the event. If you would like to be involved let us know or watch this space for more information!
