Science & Wine #2 - Civic Participation and Belongigng

Science and Wine is the occasion through which research staff of the Timișoara Polytechnic University will present science in all its beauty to those who are eager to find out more. After participating in storytelling workshops and a mentoring process, the researchers will explain concepts in their field of activity in a way that the non-specialist public can understand.

This event brings to the forefront phd candidate Andreea Simici, researcher at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism. Her doctoral work is motivated by the desire to recover civic participation and the feeling of belonging to participatory public institutions through actions in the public space.

Does public space have an educational dimension? How can public space be a learning tool? How can communities coagulate around public space?

Following this presentation, participants are invited to participate in a light discussion on the topic.

To create a unique experience, the discussions will be accompanied by a wine tasting.

The wines are offered by Cramele Recaș, and the selection is specially designed for each individual theme.


The project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded through the Grow Timișoara 2023 programme, implemented by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with funds allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
