Graphic recording about signs in Richmond

The City of Richmond, BC began a community dialogue about signage and cultural harmony, and graphic recording was part of the design.

In situations where people are passionate, I’ve seen graphic recording help. The process supports people during the session. People feel heard. These visuals are an immediate way to acknowledge that people are coming from different places. It’s also a place for reflection. The poster became an interactive area where people could congregate after the event to talk with each other and reflect on what happened. And afterwards, the visuals document the different perspectives.

Importantly, in this dialogue process, we weren’t there to decide on next steps. Instead, the workshop structure led skillfully by Joanna Ashworth helped share views and collect information about next possible actions.

The Richmond Review was on hand to cover the event, and the images were featured in the story.
