SILBERSALZ Festival_Museum of the Moon by Luke Jerram

SILBERSALZ has advocated public engagement since 2018. The 5-day festival in Halle (Saale) makes science and media topics accessible through gripping films, exciting discussions, and interactive installations. SILBERSALZ addresses three target groups: People interested in science or those who are still hesitant (Public Programme), professionals working in research, film or media (Conference Programme) as well as children and young people (SILBERSALZ made by Youth).

Next edition: 15-19 June 2022, Halle (Salle), Germany
