The Importance of Telling Stories

The St Edmund Hall Centre for the Creative Brain invite you to join us on Saturday 24 February, from 3:00pm to 6:00pm at St Edmund Hall (in the Doctorow Hall). This event will explore how the brain encodes information through stories and narrative, what makes a good story, and how this can be harnessed to allow more effective communication. The afternoon will close with a workshop, hosted by Simon De Deney of Infinite Space, to allow attendees to practise creating their own stories.

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the afternoon, and a drinks reception will be held at the end of the symposium.

The symposium is free and open to all. We welcome undergraduates, postgraduates, parents, academics, scientists, artists and anyone with an interest in storytelling and communication.


Tickets are free, but need to be reserved in advance online here.
