Storytelling in science communication: join us for a day at the beach<https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/storytelling-in-science-communication-join-us-for-a-day-at-the-beach-tickets-25253088668>
Storytelling can transform dry, technical information into compelling and relatable content that everyone wants to read, watch, listen to and share.
So how can we harness storytelling techniques to improve science communication?
This mini-conference aims to inspire and educate, so that audience members can apply storytelling in their own practice of science communication.
Friday, 3 June 2016 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (ACST)

Marine Discovery Centre - 333 Military Road, Henley Beach, SA 5022

Program of events*

9.00am: Coffee/tea (provided) and mingling

9.30am: Welcome and introduction

9.40am: Opening address from Kristin Alford, UniSA
Kristin is director of UniSA's Science, Creativity and Education Studio (or SciCEd), and will share some thoughts on where science fits in our culture.

"Science is too often viewed in isolation," Kristin said in an interview with The Advertiser in January 2016. "I'm really interested in how you might connect science and language, maths and poetry, or chemistry and music, so science is not seen as an isolated, specialised endeavour."

10.15am: Where is the storytelling? Critical analysis of communication case studies
A faciliated analysis of narrative-based communication of science and other speciality areas. Chaired by Sarah Keenihan, confirmed panel members include Katrina McLachlan (journalist and business owner at Stories Well Told), Brenton Edwards (photographer/videographer and business owner at Stories Well Told), Dr Tullio Rossi (animator and illustrator).

11:15am: Morning tea (provided)

11.45am: Wonggayerlo - Footsteps in the Sand
What happens when people with different ways of learning about the world discover how to communicate those differences with each other?

Karl Telfer (Kaurna leader and cultural bearer) and Michael Mills (Heaps Good Productions) present a story about ways of understanding our relationship to the natural world. It is a place where science meets culture, and is a journey of two peoples across the generations. It is a journey of sharing, where two people with different ways of understanding and interpreting the world, walk amongst shared footsteps along the coast of Adelaide.

12.30pm: Beach walk
Beachcombing with a difference! Join Marine Discovery Centre patrons Karl Telfer (Kaurna leader and cultural bearer) and Chris Daniels (biologist and science communicator) to experience real-time science communication from different points of view amongst the sands.

1.15pm: Lunch (provided)

2pm: What is a story?
A workshop on developing skills in storytelling, presented by David Chapple, Writing Development Manager, SA Writers Centre. Bring pens and paper, or your laptop!
