Organizing an event at the Collegium
Information for fellows

Organizing and hosting your own event is a central part of the fellowship experience at the Collegium. Each fellow’s event is individual and organized around their own interests and work, with no single format applied to all events. You can give a lecture, convene a meeting, organize a workshop, host a symposium, set up a conference, curate an exhibition, or develop an entirely new form for your event. The diversity of the event program is a reflection of the variety of projects, people, disciplines, and backgrounds of the fellows at the Collegium. All events by fellows are free-of-charge for attendees, and most are open to the public, making the Collegium a focal point where different audiences can join in the discussion. The Collegium’s staff strives to make the process of organizing your event as a fellow as smooth as possible.
