Creative Collisions - Ecsite Annual Conference 2018
The 29th edition of the Ecsite Conference is hosted by CETAF member, the Natural History Museum of Geneva, in partnership with CERN, University of Geneva Scienscope, and Campus Biotech.
Open to all professionals who engage audiences with science and technology, the Ecsite conference offers an intense mix of intellectual stimulation, experimental formats and inspiring human encounters. Sharpen your critical mind, recharge your creative batteries, harvest contacts and tools, make business and let off steam on the dance floor.
This year's theme is “Creative collisions”. In a society where thoughts, words and deeds are increasingly standardised, placing different worldviews on a collision course can be a source of innovation and creativity. Collisions are not necessarily destructive: they can produce new elements, forms, knowledge and energies. Science engagement offers a unique space to experiment with new creative collisions between science and society, experts and amateurs, science and politics, art and science, nature and culture, science and faith, real and virtual, old and new. “Creative collisions” is a stimulating concept that can help us reinvent communication, teaching, learning, and thinking!
