Collaborative Visual Thinking

workshop


A picture is a thousand words, yet most of our discussions are still verbal. If we want to work together towards sustainable change, we have to use methods that are inclusive, collaborative, and supportive of creative thinking. In this series of Collaborative Visual Thinking workshops, you will learn what visual thinking is, why it is useful, and how it can be employed. We do this by discussing important contemporary issues, to better understand the complexity of these problems. In the workshop, everyone is invited to draw out their ideas, so that it becomes easier to create a shared language for imagining a more sustainable future together.

The workshops deal each with a specific topic that will be analysed through the lens of social, economic and environmental sustainability, such as: the pandemic, systemic racism, social media & fake news, climate change, overpopulation, space exploration and the impact of tourism, among others. The workshops consist of two parts: we start with understanding in more depth what visual thinking is and practise various drawing styles (each workshop deals with a different aspect of visual thinking); then we use these new skills to engage in a visual discussion, by sharing what we know, by formulating challenging questions, and by drawing out the complexities of the problem to understand how a more sustainable approach could be taken.

By participating in these workshops, you will gain:

NEW SKILLS

You will feel comfortable sketching out your ideas, which can be used in any type of meeting, whether you are studying, working in the public or the private sector…people will love to see a different approach!

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

You will feel better informed about contemporary issues, and through the process of active listening and sharing, you will gain insights into different perspectives, and learn to think critically.

SENSE OF EMPOWERMENT

You will be more engaged and able to act meaningfully when you have a better overview of the issues at stake, insights into (local/individual) solutions, and a connection to people who care.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

You will meet like-minded people with whom you can continue to work or collaborate together, or just feel part of a community of people with shared values.

Visual Storytelling

 

Stories are the glue of society, they can inspire, transform and move to action. Yet, too often we let others create stories for us - the (social) media, the politicians, our employers. It's time to create our own stories and meet face-to-face (with some distance) to share, listen and discuss! This time without internet trolls.


Visual Storytelling is a platform open to everyone to tell a story visually, short and powerful. You get max. 7 minutes to present between 10-14 PPT slides (no text, only images!), each shown for 30 seconds on automatic timer. It can be on any topic, for example a project you're engaged in, something you're passionate about, a moving experience or a particularly interesting idea. The key question is: what do you wish to give your audience through your story?


You are very welcome to attend as a listener. If you'd like to share a story, please send a message with the following information:

1) the topic in max. 150 words

2) your story title for the programme

Covid-19 Precautions


Visual Agency is taking the infection risk very seriously, and while we will be working in small groups, we want to make sure to take several other precautions to minimise the risk.


We greet each other in Thai style, and make sure that we keep a social distance to one another while working around the large table. The large meeting room has a good ventilation system which will be turned on. You are welcome to wear a mask and/or visor, if you wish. Washing hands before and after the event is advised. As we will be using shared markers, there will be hand gel available to disinfect your hands during the event - make sure not to touch your face after using the markers. Your help in keeping everyone safe is much appreciated!


If you have any Covid-19 related symptoms, please stay at home and get in touch with the facilitator as soon as possible to cancel your attendance: info@visualagency.org.
