We have to be able to navigate in chaos and work with complex challenges. To do that we must empower people to engage, contribute and take responsibility so they experience that they play an important role in finding a solution.
Graphic facilitation can support that process. The practice can be applied in different ways depending on which kind of workshop, project or strategy you are working with. Below you can find examples of ways to work with graphic facilitation.
Make a visual summary of you meeting or conference to document the event in an inspiring and inviting way. A graphic recorder will do live drawing during your event and make a visual interpretation of what is taking place. The method help the participants to remember what is taking place. print outs of the visual summary can be shared afterwards and used for knowledge sharing and storytelling.
Here is an example of a recording from a 2 day conference at the Nordic Council of Minister. Find more examples – click here
STRATEGIC VISUALISATION & PRESENTATIONS
When you ned to get an overview of your project or strategy, strategic visualisation is a great help. The graphic facilitator will together with a group your group of colleagues sketch out the project or strategy. The sketching process reveal a shared picture for the group. Together you will gain overview and clarity of where you are at, what’s missing and the steps for moving forward. The sketch can be turned into a poster which can be used for visual presentation for the rest of the organisation. With the poster you can provide overview and clarity to the rest of the co-workers just as you experienced with your core team. The visual presentation communicates your message in an inspiring and engaging way. See examples of visual presentations – click here
