The Story Collider returns to the Wellington home stage for our first show of 2019. Join us Tuesday 12 March for a night of true, personal stories about science told live on stage.

From the tragic to the hilarious, we'll explore the deeply human side of science with stories drawn from everyday experiences and truly uncommon occurrences.

This live performance involves five brave souls telling stories about how their lives have changed for ten minutes each. No notes, no props, and no powerpoint presentation. This show will feature all kinds of storytellers -- researchers studying brain and climate science, a maths educator, health tech entrepreneur and "moth lady".

Doors open at 7 pm, show starts at 8pm at The Third Eye. Please arrive early for the best seats. Seating is not pre-assigned or guaranteed.
