This is session 4 of 6 masterclasses. This masterclass will allow you to build on your learnings from the core masterclasses and develop your ideas further.

Key areas covered

  • Develop new and existing ideas for public engagement activities or events, through group and individual exercises using creative, problem-solving and ideas-generation approaches 
  • 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.
  • Collaborate with colleagues and facilitators to think about the next exciting directions in the progression of your engagement idea
  • Gain inspiration and new perspectives through sharing ideas with others  in the session
  • Understand the next steps towards putting your engagement ideas into action

Who is it for?
