Cité internationale de la bande dessinée et de l’image, Angoulême (France)

Science is told, science is drawn, science is staged. It is moving into mainstream cultural spaces (theatres, children's books, graphic novels, comic strips) and is gradually moving away from its usual forms of expression (research articles, symposia, magazines and specialized books). Today, teachers use narrative and visual arts to bring science to their classrooms; researchers and authors combine their talents to make the secrets of laboratories better known to as many people as possible; academic knowledge and research methods are bubbling up, in comics, albums, novels, plays...

The objective of the conference Telling Science, Drawing Science is to promote and share research and/or mediation experiences in the fields of education, scientific mediation and communication, storytelling and image. The symposium is open to all researchers and practitioners (illustrators, mediators, authors, teachers, trainers, etc.) concerned with the transmission of knowledge in the scientific disciplines: mathematics, natural sciences, human sciences and social sciences. It is also a place of inspiration for those involved in the transmission of knowledge in search of new and original ideas.
