Graphic Facilitation at Creative Mornings Vancouver: Visual Language

People care when they see their ideas matter. And that’s why I love my job. Here’s my talk from Creative Mornings Vancouver. A big-hearted community creates this interesting, free breakfast event each month in 120+ cities around the globe.

I gave a keynote on “The Visual Language” and graphic facilitation. For me, it’s about “process versus product” in my work, and the collaboration that graphic facilitation fosters with groups and organizations. See the full keynote thanks to Creative Mornings: Vancouver.

You can read a little interview about me – and why I think it takes a lifetime to make the art you are capable of making- on the Creative Mornings/Vancouver site here.

Follow the tweets from that morning in this Storify, or on Twitter using #cmvan or @Vancouver_CM. The Storify is a great way to see the conversations.

A huge thank you to Wacom for sending 10 new Bamboo Sparks as gifts for the audience! I used it to make for the fun image you see in the first photo. I always need to scribble/ doodle/ make lists/ write things down – and I’m loving the handwriting to text on regular paper.

I made a free Creative Planner gift for the audience you can download.

There was a great Q & A that followed my talk. The questions gave me the opportunity to speak a little bit more about my process. Many of the questions folks asked are really key right now in our graphic facilitation field. In a future post I’ll answer them more fully.

Thanks again to the whole community who puts on Creative Mornings, and see you there soon! It’s really a unique and positive space to shape your creative ideas.
