Story Collider’s First Science Story Slam

July 16, 2020


Event Navigation

Do you have a science story you’re dying to share? Are you looking to sharpen your science storytelling skills with supportive feedback from expert performers and science communicators? Or maybe you’d just like to hang out with the Story Collider gang on a Thursday night and enjoy some new and original stories?

If so, join us for our first-ever science story slam! Our community of storytellers offers a warm, supportive environment in which storytellers of all backgrounds and levels of experience can experiment (pun not intended!) with personal narrative. Since this is our first slam, this month’s theme is FIRSTS.

If you’re interested in telling a story, you’ll have the opportunity to put your name in the virtual hat at the start of the show. Five lucky storytellers will get the opportunity to share their stories on screen. (For more guidance on telling a story at one of our slams, see our advice using the show link.) If you would prefer just to be a part of the audience, that’s fine too!

Our two coaches — representing expertise in both story performance and science communication — will offer each storyteller advice and encouragement to help them bring out the best in their stories.
