AJBCM Delegation at the European Citizen Science Association conference

On Sep. 9, 2020, a delegation from the Jug Band Colline Metallifere (Jack O’Malley, Dario Canal and Wolfgang Scheibe) took part in the annual conference of the European Citizen Science Association.

The group performed some of its songs in a workshop about “Co-designing a space for Citizen Science”, by Claudia Göbel, Pia Viviani, and Jack O’Malley, also proposing a “participation blues”, specifically written for this event.

Jug Band Colline Metallifere Duo @ Melosgrano, Lago dell’Accesa, Massa Marittima (Tuscany), Aug. 7, 2020: How did it go?

The conce[r|p]t in the “MeloSgrano” space at Lago dell’Accesa, by Massa Marittima on Aug. 7, 2020 (see here the presentation of the event, with the full calendar of initiatives through September) turned out to be a great success.

We created a set based on documents and findings held in our “stuff-o-theque“, and we gave a performance were stories on the Southern Tuscan territory and some of the characters we met there over the years are intertwined with reports of community engagement and research activities, and -of course- songs dealing with the same topics.

Thanks to Coop. Il Melograno for this opportunity and to Romina Zago for the photos.

After the official show there was a little jam session involving also Paolo Mari (with the excess of guitars in the area he could not avoid joining the team for a couple of songs).
