Learning Languages through Stories with Lucie Prisovska
We use languages to tell stories, to express our thoughts and feelings and to pass the meaning, the beauty through a written or spoken text. However, you can find a story in the language itself.
In the workshop, we will find another way to approach learning a language. Forget
boring exercises and meaningless textbooks. Let’s explore languages using improv games, movement, sounds and create our own personal stories.

The Art of Moviemaking with Gabriele Tacchi
Movie-making is telling a story with the best technology at your disposal. It’s the best balance between organization and art. We will approach the basis of the visual storytelling, starting from the silent cinema.

It’s a strange and hard work to find the correct road…but remember…where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

Let’s Talk about Science with Michele Marini

What if the real issue is how we communicate science? What if spreading data and graphs homogeneously is only scary for people? What if scientists start to use stories to get people involved in science?

ImproWise your Story with Gergő Kiss
Improvisation prepares and trains people to step into the unknown with confidence as no one really knows what comes next in an improvised play or story. Improvisers are getting prepared for embracing the unexpected without planning and controlling the future. It requires dealing with uncertainty with openness and curiosity, a quick adaptation to new situations, these skills have never been more relevant than nowadays.
