Participating in the Danish Research Festival

In the week 17, or from April 25 to May 1, there will be Danish Research Festival running across the country and this year I’ll be part of it!

The organizers say that “the festival programme has about 500 different events in more than 100 cities all over the country and every year more than 65,000 guests visit the festival.” It is ran every year and it is organized by Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

It seems like the main idea of the Festival is to bring science closer to general public. Sounds like fun! I’ll be exploring different events during the week and will keep you updated on my favorites from the proposed programme.

If you are in Copenhagen and you’re interested in psychology of time, please join me!

Psychology of time: Before, after and in-between

April 28th, 19:00 to 21:00 at Rantzausgade 34

Please register here, since the places are limited.

This talk aims to introduce you to the exciting topic of psychological time.

The different roles time plays in our everyday life, how it impacts what we do and how, how the tempo of a city has an impact of our health and how to find a temporal balance will be explored during the talk.

We will also talk about temporal aspects of groups and cultures and how those influence cross-cultural communication and sustainability issues.

Creative flow as a resource

May 1st, 12:00 to 14:00 at Rantzausgade 34

Please register here, since the places are limited.

This workshop is designed to serve as a window into a different reality, a few hours just for yourself, away from usual stress, uncertainties and routines. An opportunity to zoom out, to do something different or something long forgotten, but enjoyable and invigorating.

It is time to get together with your inner creative and a few other like minded people and do something fun and inspiring.

It is time to take a break, breathe, be with yourself and dissolve in your dreams and then continue with new energy and focus.

It is time to stop waiting for the muse, we’ll start without her, but she’ll join us anyway.

It is time to create and discover!

Temporal Matters Salon

This has been an exciting collaboration so far – between me, representing the International Time Perspective Network and the Celebrating Time, 3rd International Conference on Time Perspective and Creative Roots: Collective Urbanism.

For most part, very outside my comfort zone, but that is why I ventured on this adventure – to explore where and how the psychological theories about time and urbanism issues intersect.

So far we held two Salons at the Cafe Ved Buen. One talk was dedicated to Pace of Life and the other one – to chronotope. The more I read about the chronotope, the more I was getting inspired by this concept and its possible applications outside the literary studies.

You can see my prezi’s from both of the occasions and you’re most welcome to drop by next time! See the schedule and sign up on Eventbrite.

Temporal Matters Salon #1: Pace of Life
