The Story Collider comes to Vassar to showcase narratives of science and community
April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Grand Challenges program at Vassar College is excited to bring The Story Collider (https://www.storycollider.org/) to campus to help us learn to tell our stories about how science affects our lives. This includes a storytelling workshop on February 21, followed by a storytelling show at the Martel Theater on April 28 at which several Vassar faculty, students, and staff will present their stories developed during the workshop.
The Story Collider combines expertise from producing live shows with insight from psychology and social science research about the effect of narrative, and focuses it all on true, personal stories about science. This is NOT an event only for students or faculty, researchers or scientists. Science touches everyone’s lives and therefore everyone has stories. We enthusiastically welcome Vassar faculty, students, and staff in the humanities and arts, social sciences, and all other areas.
At The Story Collider Workshop on February 21 from 1:00 to 4:00pm, you can develop your own personal storytelling ability, working under the guidance of experienced Story Collider producers. We will brainstorm, develop, and refine our personal stories and bolster our ability to employ narrative in our work as teachers, students, researchers, and public intellectuals. Five participants from the workshop will be selected to share their stories at the public storytelling event at the Martel Theater on April 28!
