Are you interested in communicating your research to the public? With hundreds of free events over two weeks, the Cambridge Festival of Ideas is one of the most exciting and dynamic occasions in the Cambridge cultural calendar. The Festival includes debates, workshops, talks, exhibitions and performances, and focuses on fuelling the public’s interest in and involvement with the arts, humanities and social sciences in a unique and inspiring way.

If you are interested in participating in this year's Festival (14–27 October 2019), join Ariel Retik, Public Engagement and Festival Manager at the University of Cambridge, for a short information session. Time will be allocated for questions.
