FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

What is the event?

International Sketchnote Camp is a gathering of sketchnoters, no matter what job you have or how many years of practice you have. We will share, learn en connect with each other. It’s a gathering of like minded people, who would like to celebrate their passion about sketchnoting. More information about the event on this page.

Is the event also online?

No. ISC23NL will be a face to face event only. It will be a “live” experience, there will be no recordings of the sessions. 

I hear someting about a Slack-channel?

That’s correct! We would like to connect with you even before the start of the event!

Mike Rohde has allowed us to use the Sketchnote Army Slack group for this. If you’re not in this Slack group already, here’s some (visual) guidance how you can join!

What language will be spoken?

Before, during and after the event we will be speeking English. And we ask all the participants to speak English during the event. This way, everyone can join conversations and understand what’s been said.

Is there a specific hotel where participants go to?

We don’t know. But this is a perfect example of a question you can ask to the participants in our online Sketchnote Base Camp! More information about that you’ll find on this webpage.

How can I buy tickets?

The event is over.

During ISC23NL Mike Rohde announced in his key note that a group of American sketchnoters will organize an ISC in 2024 in San Antionio, Texas. They aim for August 2024. Michael Clayton will take the lead.


Where is my invoice?

We have received several emails / questions from attendees that bought a ticket, but couldn’t find the invoice.

Below is our answer to this question:

“If you have ordered a ticket through Eventbrite, you will receive a confirmation email containing your ticket along with an order summary. The order summary serves as an invoice for your purchase. Since your event is organized by an NGO, it is exempt from taxes, and thus the invoice will show 0% tax.

It is important to keep this invoice as a record of your purchase, as it may be necessary for reimbursement or tax purposes. If you have any further questions regarding your Eventbrite order or the invoice, you can contact their customer support for assistance.”

Are all meals included?

No. During Camp-hours drinks, snacks and a lunch (Saturday and Sunday) are included. On Friday we have a simple meal included. On Saturday evening we have a social activity included in the program, which is called a Food Scoot. 

But breakfast on Saturday and Sunday is not included. 

What additional costs should I take into account?

To give you an impression:

  • Travel costs from your home to Leiden, The Netherlands (plane, train, bus, car) (train ticket from Schiphol Airport to Leiden Central Station is around € 7)
  • Hotel costs, for your stay during the event (including breakfast?) (range € 100 – € 150 for one night)
  • Dinner costs (on Thursday and Sunday) if you come earlier of stay longer (range of € 20 – € 50 for a dinner in a restaurant, we will give you suggestions)
I have special needs, can you accommodate me?
