The University of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind event takes place between 18 and 28 September 2014, bringing together academics and industry professionals to showcase their research and bring it to life.
Saturday 20 September sees the Resilient Cultures event take place as part of the Festival of the Mind. This event explores open technology and resilience and participants can get involved in a variety of hands on activities during the event. Two of these activities relate to Information School projects: Jo Bates’ current weather datum project and Farida Vis’ everyday growing cultures project.
The Resilient Cultures event is open to everyone and will give adults and children alike the chance to try out activities that relate to Information School research projects. The event takes place in the University’s Firth Court building and admission is free.
