About the session

If you would like to develop your ideas for a public engagement event or activity, come along to our masterclass and get inspired!

You might be looking for inspiration to get your public engagement started or maybe you have an idea already that you are looking to develop creatively. We welcome a diverse range of ideas, from experiences at the Imperial Festival, a digital engagement platform you would like to try out, a big question you would like to turn into an activity, an audience you would like to engage or a topic that you would like to create an event around.

Key areas covered

Within this interactive workshop, you will explore creative approaches, problem-solving and ideas generation to develop public engagement activities or events. Through collaborating with colleagues in the session, and with advice from our expert facilitator, you will be guided to think about the next steps (or even potential exciting alternative and additional directions) in the progression of your engagement idea.

Who is this for?

This masterclass is aimed at staff who feel inspired by public engagement and who would like to take their ideas to the next stage.

It's perfect for any staff who:

  • Have become a bit stuck with their idea, are unsure what to do with it next or how to make it happen
  • Are open-minded and looking to discuss ideas with others 
  • Would like to have the space to think creatively and innovatively about public engagement

Dates and times:

Autumn dates to be announced shortly.
