2016 Public Day

Full program of the Bridges Public Day:

Can mathematics be playful, can it be fun? Can mathematics be intriguing, attractive, amazing and magical, even for those who did not think it was the most inspiring class at school? At Bridges Public Day we give it try: so, come and experience it yourself!

In 2016, the Bridges Conference, the largest mathematics and art interdisciplinary conference in the world goes to the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. We open the gates of the ivory tower of mathematics wider than ever and invite everyone of all ages to browse among the rich collection of artistic and scientific workshops and fun programs.

Our goal is to offer a math-art-experience, an on-site immersion into the fun-world of mathematics and arts. The participants of the Bridges Conference, including artists, scholars and educators prepare interesting community activities, games, workshops, interactive demonstrations, presentations and a mathematical expo to provide the opportunity for everybody to enjoy various activities related to the STEAM idea (i.e., connecting Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).


Admission is FREE to ALL EVENTS of the Bridges Public Day!

The Bridges Public Day is coordinated by Kristóf Fenyvesi, Bridges Organization's Director of Community Events, researcher of Contemporary Art & Culture Studies at University of Jyväskylä, Finland.
