Engaged Practice Symposium – Monday 24 June

Engaged Practice Symposium – Monday 24 June

Join us for an afternoon of inspiration, reflection and making connections. Hear about Birkbeck researchers’ public engagement, have a go at some innovative engagement activities and talk to researchers and public engagement professionals from across London.

The Birkbeck Public Engagement Team has been part-funded by UK Research & Innovation for the past two years, enabling growth in both the team and their support across the College. As this grant concludes, we want to reflect upon what has been achieved and celebrate the people we’ve worked with; sharing our stories and experiences.
