Do you live in Canada or the USA and want to start a new Science Festival?
The Science Festival Alliance, which is supported by the charitable Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, announced a grant matching opportunity for new Festival Initiatives. They will fund up to $10,000 to match independent fundraising efforts. You can find more details and application materials here.
Live anywhere else? A Festival Training Institute (FTI) will come your way soon!
The second FTI will be held in Panama from November 20 - 23, 2016. Delegations from our ACS Chapters in Peru and Brazil; from our allies at the Sociedad Química de México; and from previous Festival sites in Colombia and Chile will train for two days to develop Festival proposals for 2017. They will complete their training by attending a Festival planned at the Ciudad del Saber by Dr. Rafael Vasquez.
Future FTI's will travel to Eastern Europe and the Middle East and Africa, so stay tuned for more details!
