Annual Applied Improvisation Network World Conference

Stony Brook University

Applied Improvisation Network World Conference 2019 Communicating Beyond Borders and Barriers: Applications Of Improvisation In Society August 8-11, 2019 at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY In partnership with the Alan Alda Center For Communicating Science Hey everyone! If you're really interested in learning how to apply improvisation into many different aspects of life, work, the world - this is the conference for you! You'll have the opportunity to meet hundreds of people from all around the world that either utilize Applied Improv or want to learn more. And, you'll be able to attend a bunch of different classes to help you learn a variety of different aspects of Applied Improv. Plus, there's always fun entertainment stuff to do in the evenings. Another plus, it's at Alan Alda's (remember MASH?) institute - he uses/teaches improv techniques to scientists to help them be better communicators. The conference sells out every year - last year it sold out in the early bird - so reserve a spot now. Look forward to seeing you there!
