Personally, whenever we need to have courageous conversations – art is always a powerful way to open up that space. Graphic recording can be a way to help digest important information – and also to encourage people to work from a heart-space and process their own thoughts using art.
The 2021 National Skillshare series was an online webinar series that builds on Possibility Seeds’ vital report Courage to Act: Developing a National Framework to Prevent and Address Gender-Based Violence at Post-Secondary Institutions. This is first-of-its-kind national initiative that brings together post-secondary faculty, staff, students and other community members from across Canada to implement strategies and tools on campus to prevent and address gender-based violence.

Online Graphic Recording
Using Zoom, we joined the webinars and created these illustrations live and in real-time. Participants could both follow along with the illustrations as the graphic recording was produced, and at the end of each session the images were shown to the audience to emphasize and reflect back the main points. All images were available online afterwards to keep the conversation going.
