Dr. Holmes is excited to add her voice to Felicia Davis' creation, The Black Women’s Collective. "I'm always interested in speaking with people who see that we can elevate everyone and that advancement is a collective process," said Dr. Holmes looking forward to her conversation with Ms Davis. 

What are the benefits and experience of improvisation?

Scientists around the country are discovering that improvisational theater helps their communication and collaboration skills. What have we learned about these playful theater exercises? Scientists strengthen their ability to listen, to speak spontaneously and respond to the unexpected. All qualities that deepen our ability to build scientific conversations.

The improvscience Chat is an online conversation series, open to all. Join us in these free, informal chats that expand our conceptualizations of science and scientists. The Chat is hosted by Dr. Holmes and happens every other month at 2 pm ET.

Experience the philosophy and culture of a company dedicated to play and performance in science. How do we understand these seemingly disjointed activities, science and improvisational play, to be related?  

Each chat focuses on a new topic addressing play and performance in the context of science:
