About the event

In the weekend of September 1-3, 2023, International Sketchnote Camp was hosted in Leiden, The Netherlands. A group of 140 people (participants, rockstars, sponsors and the crew) celebrated together their passion for sketchnoting. Thank you all who contributed to this: ISC23NL was a success because of ALL OF YOU!

Our location…

ISC23NL Leiden

Mainly vegetarian food during #ISC23NL

The catering during ISC23NL will be provided by PLNT’s in-house caterer: Midi. Midi has a Mediterranean / Moroccan cuisine and mainly serves vegetarian food. In coordination with Midi, we also want to treat our participants to some typical Dutch snacks during the event.

During the social event on Saturday evening, 4 simple dishes will be served at 4 different restaurants / food trucks in Leiden. Here too we opted for vegetarian food.

ISC23NL is organized in Leiden, The Netherlands. Leiden is an old city with a rich history, hundreds of monuments, many museums, lovely canals, a bustling city centre and many alleys to discover interesting details.

Want to know more about Leiden? We’ve contacted the Leiden Convention Bureau and they’ve made a webpage especially for you! With a lot of useful information about Leiden, what to do, where to go, information about hotels and restaurants, tourist information office, etc.

Our Partners & Sponsors in the Spotlight…

International Sketchnotecamp (ISC) is not a company. Not even a formal organization of any kind. It is organized by volunteers from the sketchnote community. And our aim is to make ISC accessible and affordable for everyone in the community. That’s why we depend on partners & sponsors who make it possible for all of us to have a great ISC together. Below you will find an overview of our heroes this year. Click on any image to read why they chose to sponsor ISC!
