Comics, Storytelling, Gourmet Toast, and Your Brain - A 7000 BC Special Event

Comics, Storytelling, Gourmet Toast, and Your Brain | Saturday, June 10, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM MDT | Online | Pay-What-You-Can 

Explore the psychological, emotional, and physical effects of a good story, found on the bread aisle!  Our brains rely on images and stories to frame our understanding of the world. 

What's really going on in there?

Don't our cognitive processes work the same?

Can our brains really sync up?

How would we even find out?

Explore these questions and more!

Good stories climb inside us and affect us psychologically, emotionally, and even physically.

This presentation explores how storytelling functions in the brain. The lecture will be followed by a brief workshop in which we'll create comics using techniques based on what the lecture has revealed.

This is a Pay-What-You-Can Event. 

Registration is required.  Click to register through Eventbrite.

7000 BC's Between the Panels Comics Workshops, our series of pay-what-you-can online comics workshops, are on a break and will return in the fall.

In the meantime, we are presenting three Special Events - lectures on assorted comics topics that culminate in brief comics workshops built on the lecture topics. If you would like to receive an email about upcoming Special Events or the full 16-week course this Fall, please email info@7000bc.org.

Stay safe, be well, and make comics!
