Resisting, saying no, going against what is mainstream. Protesting is part of being human. Come to this festival full of science and music. In short talks and sound bites, Radboud scientists, artists and performers will help you think about protest in all its forms and phenomena. Doornroosje programmes the concerts of top live acts.

From 20:00 to ca 01:00 hrs a continuous programme of concerts, 30 minutes scientific talks and shorter sound bites about science and protest are programmed in the red and purple hall, the café and the hall of Doornroosje.

Take a look at the programme

Science, music and more

What does the return of the witch have to do with protest? A street protest is nothing without music. What about the Pierson riots? Rave as a form of protest. Why are more people arrested at Extinction Rebellion protests than at farmers protests? Vaccination doubts as a form of protest. Is it possible to protest digitization? And much more... 

Make your own protest button, chill at the podcast corner, participate in the (non-romantic) speed date, make a selfie with protest attributes,...

Most talks will be held in Dutch. Some will be held in English. Keep an eye on our website for additional programme items.
