Science Writers and Communicators of Canada (SWCC) and Science Technology Awareness Network (STAN) are hosting their annual conferences in Vancouver in April. This joint reception event featuring #scicomm and #sciart is free for conference delegates and also open to the public (see ticket link).
Friends, family, and fans of science communication & communicators welcome!
This evening event will include performances and activities from:
* Beakerhead - Power Point Karaoke, hosted by Banff SciComm/Beakerhead alumni: A deck of slides is provided. Brave participants, who have never seen the slides before, improvise the talk. Hilarity ensues, egged on by an enthusiastic audience.
* Curiosity Collider - #sciart silent auction, stage performances, and art installation
* SFU Applied Sciences - interactive technology exhibits
* Science Slam Canada - Whether it's a talk, a poem, a song, a dance, or something completely unexpected, the possibilities are endless. Our only two rules? Five minute slams, and no slideshows allowed!
Get your tickets - available until April 10! This is a 19+ event. Performances starting at 7:30, doors at 7 pm.
