Imagine your ideas drawn — incorporating energy, colour, space, line, scale, icons, figures, metaphors. This is the territory of visual practice, which makes the fleeting and ephemeral nature of spoken conversation concrete.

Visual practitioners make marks that allow people to see their thinking through new lenses. They help people speak up and listen, think critically, find themes, chart relationships, reach understanding, and take action.

Drawn Together through Visual Practice demonstrates the power of visuals as a primary sensemaking device in an age of unprecedented complexity. With this book, we embrace visual thinking, practice and facilitation as a defining technology of our time.

This anthology connects ideas and practitioners at a moment when our practice is dramatically expanding.  Whether we are visual veterans, bold beginners, or curious companions to the field of visual practice, we will all come together to:

  • Deepen our knowledge by exploring rich and diverse perspectives from 27 cross-disciplinary practitioners on 4 continents
  • Delve into deep and resonant questions at the core of connection and communication that prompt us to pause awhile and reflect on our practice
  • Show up as a trusted and capable partner and work to our true potential
  • Playfully dive into experiments with improvisation, dancineering, kinesthetic modeling, and other valuable processes and delight in the surprising results that will improve our skills and impact
  • Discover refreshing possibilities to make our mark in this growing field and be inspired to help solve the complex puzzles of our time

Leaders in facilitation, conflict mediation, education – and all other areas using visual processes to establish common ground – will find an unparalleled wisdom of experience in these pages.
