This is a guest post from the organizers of the ACCelerate: ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival:
Wake Forest is seeking projects for the second ACCelerate: ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival to be held in Washington, D.C. on April 5-7, 2019 (dates still tentative).
We are seeking exciting transdisciplinary projects to represent the University at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Projects involving WFU/faculty/student/community teams are highly encouraged. Projects can be submitted through an online survey. They will be evaluated based on completion/readiness and the potential to actively engage the festival audience.
The timeline is as follows:
Support from the Office of Provost will be available to help with the creation and transportation of the exhibits and exhibitors.
The first ACCelerate festival on October 13-15, 2017 drew a crowd of 36,000 participants. We are anticipating and equally impressive turnout in 2019. To learn more about the 2017 Festival, please visit http://acceleratefestival.com/.
