For seven years, Science in the City has been building bridges between researchers and artists to organise a night of wonder. Dazzling artworks, inspired by Malta’s most relevant research, have become synonymous with the festival’s magenta logo. Few really know that this is only made possible thanks to a small team of dedicated individuals, a growing number of partners and hundreds of volunteers.

Science in the City project manager Edward Duca says: “This year’s festival promises to be spectacular with our Science is Culture theme. We have been work­ing hard building a spec­tacu­lar programme over two years with over 80 partners, and with an estimated 30,000 visitors, we really need all the help we can get. We’re looking for enthusiastic people of all ages and from all sectors of society to join us on the day and be part of this national event.”

Volunteers can choose to be part of a number of opportunities on the night. These include welcoming and ushering visitors, conducting research and evaluation, communicating information about the events and photography.

Being a volunteer at Science in the City means developing new skill sets, thanks to training sessions set up by the organisers, the voluntary work itself and by meeting interesting professionals from different fields. People interested in being involved in Science in the City can do so by joining the volunteer programme.
