This year's yDiv retreat is all about Science & Art! It was postponed from last year, however, we were lucky to be able to keep all three workshops as planned. Drawing, quick and witty communication or designing your own workshop - these topics show how art and science can be linked and will hopefully inspire you in different ways.

The workshops on 10 June are running parallel! Please chose your favourite when you register.
1st Workshop: Sciences and Arts - Understanding Natural Sciences by the Arts and Understanding the Arts through Natural Sciences
The workshop includes a lecture on how artists work with both scientific research and artistic research method understanding issues around ecology, environment and climate crisis.
2nd Workshop: Visualizations for Science
The participants will get an introduction into the concept of sketchnoting as well as the wide range of applications for it. We will be training the development of a personal visual vocab list and will be taking home the very same. With artistic examples we will have a further look on how visual tools can become illustrations or infographs. Through little exercises we will attempt on thinking like a designer to apply "a bit of art on science" to make it look more interesting but underlining the important facts.

3rd Workshop: Quick & Witty - The Secret to Easy-Going, Confident Communication
We all know the feeling: I have that great idea I want to share, but I am just drawing a blank and miss the right moment in the conversation to bring it up! Or: My counterpart says something that really throws me – and I cannot think of a response (but of course, when I am lying awake in bed later I can think of so many awesome responses). Let’s explore how we can feel more at ease with communicating in the moment and reacting “off the cuff”.
