Story Collider Storytelling Workshop

50 spots available by registration only. Sign up by completing this short registration form.
The best available science tells us that for most audiences, stories are more interesting, understandable, convincing, and memorable than evidence‐focused communications. However, scientists are unfamiliar with this literature and often resist or distrust storytelling approaches. This storytelling workshop explores how to develop and tell personal stories about science with intellectual honesty and ethical consideration. Lecture and discussion will share research on storytelling and narrative persuasion and highlight the value of personal stories in science. Participants will learn how to find, develop, and perform their own deeply human stories of science. This workshop will be facilitated by Story Collider.

Here is a link to the 1-hour 100 Highlights Cruise
Amsterdam is a city built on water. No wonder that canal cruises are the ultimate way of getting to know the city. By taking a 1-hour cruise you won't miss one bit of the beautiful city of Amsterdam and you'll find out just why the canals of Amsterdam have been given World Heritage status by UNESCO. Basically, a cruise is your perfect introduction to Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Canal Cruise passes all of Amsterdam's famous attractions. Canal houses from the Golden Age, the Westerkerk, the Anne Frank House: this cruise takes you past all of them. Sightseeing in Amsterdam couldn't be a more relaxing experience.
A canal cruise through Amsterdam is even more fun when you know what you’re looking at. This canal cruise is equipped with audio guides in 19 different languages, naturally including Dutch. It’s a great way to get to know all the highlights in the city in your own language.
Departure times Daily from 9:00am till 09:00pm every 30 minutes. The tour is conducted by Canal Tours Amsterdam (member of Gray Line).
Departure location: Departs from Stromma CS (Gray Line) at Prins Hendrikkade 33a (opposite Central Station)
