BIG (British Interactive Group) is thrilled to announce that the Little Event returns to Thinktank in Birmingham on Wednesday 8 January 2014.

It’s for people who are relatively new to STEM communication, whether they work in a science centre or museum, volunteer for a festival, are involved in university outreach, or do anything else to engage people with sciences. It’s a lot like the BIG Event, but a bit smaller, and all crammed into one busy day. There will be several sessions, each focusing on developing a different skill, delivered by experienced science communicators following our usual hands-on approach.

But of course it isn’t just about the sessions, it’s the people you meet there too. The Little Event presents a great opportunity to meet people from across the UK working in similar roles and sharing similar experiences. The programme for the day will include sessions on Learning and evaluation, Interacting with the public, Managing your engagement project, Presenting and careers.

The price is £45 for BIG members – or non-members will need to join BIG first for £30 for 12 months.

Thanks to generous support from Graphic Science and BIG, we are able to offer 10 bursaries to cover one year’s BIG membership, registration fees for the Little Event and £25 towards travel expenses.
