UCL ExCiteS at Bloomsbury Festival

The Bloomsbury Festival is a five-day celebration of local creativity in arts, science and more. On Saturday 20th October, the UCL Extreme Citizen Science group will have several stalls in the North Cloisters showcasing the fantastic work of several organisations: Public Lab, Ecoactive, the Camden People’s Theatre, FoAM, Just Map and Hush App. There will be short hands-on activities you can try to find out more about these people-generated citizen science projects.

Our exhibition will be free and open from 11am-4pm. To find the North Cloisters, enter UCL at the big gates on Gower Street, walk straight ahead towards the large building with the stairs and pillars, and go in through the door on the left of the stairs. It will look like an enormous corridor stretching left to right. We will be in there, with many more exhibitors.

The theme for this year's festival is Activists and Architects for Change, marking the 100 year anniversary since (some!) women got the vote in the UK. There will be over 200 exhibitions at the festival, not only in UCL but also at the British Museum and many smaller institutions. You can see the full programme here.

We've also issued an invitation for local citizen scientists to come and share our space. We've got no more room for you to share our stalls (thanks to everyone who contacted Alex!), but you are very welcome to contribute to our noticeboard - feel free to send @UCL_ExCiteS or DITOs a tweet or fill out this short Google form if you'd like to be part of a poster! You don't have to live in London or even the UK.

We hope to see you there!
