m:brane Learning

The Non Didactic Universe

In 2021 our first ever Science and learning track at m:brane was born out of need. We are surrounded by gaps: gaps in information, canyons in culture, blurred space in between what is and what is not.

This exciting new strand brings together a specifically chosen collection of stories and thinkers who represent new dimensions in contemplation about our place in the world and how we can collectively address the challenges facing us. We ask ourselves what it means to be re-wired in a positive way, to re-tool towards humanist values.

In 2024 we have dedicated the entire Opening Industry Conference to emit rays at different angles of THE NON DIDACTIC UNIVERSE – or in other words: m:brane Learning 2.0

In the Official Selection of projects in development, you find a mL-tag at those projects, that one way or another – loud or subtle – incorporate thoughts, issues, topics or ways of storytelling that emphasize the emblem of what m:brane Learning can be.

Also related to m:brane Learning is our special focus on Human Rights and Childrens Rights in collaboration with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, SE.

Embedded within this philosophy is our core identity, expressed in our name, m:brane.

We are serving a sophisticated demographic group in the population: Savvy Young Audiences – and therefore we curate the event, so that it harmonizes with smart, innovative, intelligent content both in the Opening Industry Conference and highly curated selection of projects, looking for development advice, alliances and financing.

What: m:brane’s ambition is to create a strong link between smart content creatives and the needs spun out of the science community’s so called third task – The third task is the task of colleges and universities to share knowledge, in addition to the first two main tasks, education and research.

Why: The Science Community is obliged to share their research, knowledge and findings. However often this has to be done with very limited access to funding, knowhow, network and audience/segment insight. Which creates a risk that the information does not reach the public. And as we focus on Young Audiences, those who will inherit and take over the Society we have created, the loss of knowledge transfer can in the worst case scenario, become damaged

How: Storytelling in Science Communication often turns out to be the crucial difference, whether or not the topic and research will inspire the public, promote understanding of science, and engage the public more deliberately in science.

Storytellers can help scientists find an approachable way to communicate their research to a wider target audience and through storytelling reach a larger number of people.

When scientists and visual content makers collaborate, content with a high quality can be created. This can benefit not only the involved partner as such, but also the European democratic Societies we live in, as it will evoke critical thinking, reflective mind sets and cognitive stimulation.
