We meet once a month at various places around the region, often in Birmingham city centre. During the summer months we aim to host a family picnic day.
It is not unusual for people to try out new demonstrations, seek career advice or find themselves planning work with each other. There is no guest speaker and we like it informal.
After hosting the Midlands heats of FameLab in February, our next social is much more relaxed. Join us on Friday 17th March in the World Bar, Resorts World at the NEC for the post-Big Bang Fair special, probably from about 18:00 onwards.
Future date for your diary….. Wednesday 12th April, our usual kind of social in our usual kind of place, Cherry Reds, from 18:00.
Definitely a sociable bunch.

New to SciComm?
Everybody started somewhere! If you have no idea what science communication, or ‘scicomm’ is about then start here, with our collected thoughts.
This resource will give you a glimpse into what scicomm is and the many different ways you might have come across it already.
Not an exhaustive list, but at least a nudge in the right direction of the people and groups who are working in the region.
If you want to tell stories about science or feel you can be of help to those who are, then let get in touch.
Got a question? Want to share something? Looking for advice from the comfort of your sofa? Want to see what artists and scientists talk about?
We have a Google forum and invite you to chat with us. There are few rules but keep on topic and play nicely.
#BrumSciComm was born in a cafe on a random afternoon. Three friends realised they had lots of ideas about telling stories about science but never got round to sharing them. They decided on an excuse to get together with others, but without an agenda, so nothing like a meeting at all.
Like other examples around the country, the idea was to invite scientists, artists, creatives and science communicators to share ideas about how to work together. We are journalists, researchers, teachers, performers, writers, buskers, musicians, film-makers, amateurs and professionals.
If you want to find out more, come to a social and find someone to work with.
