Exeter, Devon
Futures 2020 27 to 28 November 2020


A science comedy game show, lockdown blues workshop, and community radio takeover are just some of the events in fascinating virtual festival of discovery taking place in Exeter this November.

Exploring science, culture, and research, FUTURES2020 is hosted by the University of Exeter in partnership with Agile Rabbit, alongside the Universities of Bath, Bristol and Plymouth and Bath Spa University.

A series of free events, FUTURES2020 is aimed at those who have an interest in science, the arts and local heritage, as well as people who fancy trying something a bit different.

Guaranteed to help lighten the dark wintery days, it is an unusual opportunity to chat with researchers and take part in fun activities that showcase innovative discoveries from their cities.

Events include:
• Culture and research will meet when artist Pete Ward and Lecturer Dr Joanie Willett run an online interactive event on Cornish ecology.

• Lockdown Blues is a timely online workshop led by Dr Fred Cooper from the Wellcome Centre on Friday lunchtime, which will explore the themes of connection and catharsis through shared creativity.

• Later that evening, Radio 4 journalist Ritula Shah will be chairing a discussion called Why is Climate Change so hard? Looking at psychology, doubt, and communication, panellists include Richard Betts MBE and the journalist Grace Blakeley

And as geography isn't an issue this year with all the events being online, you can attend in your slippers and you'll be able to attend events organised by the other Universities in this venture, all for free.

FUTURES is a joint venture between the Universities of Bristol, Bath, Exeter and Plymouth and Bath Spa University and is part of European Researcher's Night which is funded by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
