Creating space for meaningful dialogue
In 2016, 150 arts, culture, and heritage workers gathered for the BC Cultural Roundtable to discuss leadership, transition and legacy in the arts. In a big conference room, Drawing Change facilitated a session where we could hear from all voices, especially youth and marginalized voices.
Graphic facilitation invites creativity for the room
Graphic facilitation enabled us to host a highly participatory arts-based session. In groups of 6, people engaged in three rounds of conversations, and then at the end Sam drew out ideas from the group , while creating a visual record of the session. All meetings benefit from more creativity – and deserve a legacy that truly reflects high quality ideas.
See your best ideas emerge – in front of you
Graphic facilitation is an opportunity for co-creation. It values process over product. It honors the ideas, which are more of a focus than elaborate drawings. That day, it was opportunity for a diverse sector to harness the wisdom of the group to create meaningful change. The next time you’re hosting a focus group, a World Cafe, a patient journey mapping process, or having a collaborative dialogue – ask us how visuals can make it even more meaningful.
