Crescent Arts Centre, University Road
26th March: 3.00pm – 5.00pm

The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CODI) is a flagship public engagement initiative established by Edinburgh’s universities in 2013.

This short informal workshop provides an opportunity to hear about the development of CODI and how it has benefitted the academics who have performed whilst supporting the universities’ wider public engagement priorities.

The workshop will cover:

  • The value of CODI as a researcher development initiative.
  • The scope and limits of CODI as a public engagement initiative.
  • The CODI experience – good and bad!
  • How to run your own Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas show (including what NOT to do)!

Delivering the workshop will be:

  • Dr Sarah Anderson, Community Engagement Programme Manager, The University of Edinburgh
  • Susan Morrison, MC for the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas and stand-up comedian
  • David Mountain, postgraduate researcher in sociology, The University of Edinburgh
  • Kat Rezai, Lecturer in Marketing, Edinburgh Napier University
  • Stephen Wright, Director, Fair Pley. Producer, Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas

The workshop is intended mainly for academic staff and university professional services staff. Individuals from university partner organisations and students may also find the workshop of interest.

Limited places, so early registration essential.
