Visual Agency offers the following types of workshops:
- Visual Networking: for diverse professional groups to connect
- Visual Games: for community and team building using a playful approach
- Visual Learning: for children and youth to develop a deeper understanding
- Visual Thinking: for people who want to engage in discussions on important topics
- Visual Negotiation: for companies and organisations to develop new strategies
- Visual Planning: for spatial experts and non-experts to envision spatial development
These workshops have as goal to connect a diversity of professionals in an informal but effective way. By using a creative approach to networking, meeting strangers becomes fun and engaging. It becomes easier to break the ice and to find out what others need and what you can offer. The outcome is that everyone leaves with a list of suggestions, inspiration and new contacts.

These workshops are about community-building by engaging in a kind of game: cards with questions, designing a bord game, drawing symbols and sharing stories. You quickly develop new friendships through this informal, playful and creative approach.
The Visual Games are free and open to everyone. They take place at Kulturhuset Islands Brygge and you can sign up through the Visual Agency Meetup page.

These workshops are for children, youth and young adults, hosted by institutions, schools and NGO's who believe that a deeper understanding emerges from participation, dialogue and creative thinking. These workshops aim to achieve a transformative learning process through an interactive engagement with complex issues, such as climate change, politics and art movements.

These workshops are for people who want to engage in discussions on important topics. The format follows The World Cafe concept: "the World Café is a powerful social technology for engaging people in conversations that matter, offering an effective antidote to the fast-paced fragmentation and lack of connection in today’s world. Based on the understanding that conversation is the core process that drives personal, business, and organizational life, the World Café is more than a method, a process, or technique – it’s a way of thinking and being together sourced in a philosophy of conversational leadership."

These workshops are for companies and organisations to develop new strategies and to gain clarity in complex situations. I facilitate meetings on a managerial level, but also meetings with employees to engage everyone in the decision making process.
These workshops are for architects and urban planners who want to engage communities in the spatial design thinking process. They are also for organisations and individuals who wish to reorganise their spatial environment. The workshop helps to understand how a space can be optimised, and together we visualise the changes that need to take place. It is about improving, redefining and reorganising public space, private space or working space so that it is better aligned with the activities that take place in it.
