CES offers several Storycraft Workshops, developed by affiliated faculty and professionals and held during evening and weekend hours. See our newest offerings below! Our workshops are designed to bring Rochester professionals, educators, and other civic partners together and focus on sharing the latest practical applications of ‘story’ and storytelling methods, techniques, and crafts. Workshops are tailored to professional and community partners and educators specializing in distinct fields such as medical humanities and health care, science and engineering education, VR/AR/XR experiences, data-based journalism, professional leadership, creative writing, and k-12 education.
