Visual Storytelling: a social event to inspire you


Developing your Creativity: 5-week course (Tuesdays week 17-21)


 Visual Collaboration: 4-week course (Thursdays week 17-20)

Visual Storytelling

A social event bringing together people who are interested in creativity, visual communication, personal development, or simply wish to be inspired by others' stories and experiences.


Stories are the glue of society, yet we don't give them enough credit. Instead, we let others create stories for us - the media, the politicians, our employers... It's time to speak up and create ouw own stories to inspire each other, and to open up spaces for face-to-face discussions that social media don't offer. So come, engage and listen, or even share your own story at this informal community event!


Visual Storytelling is a platform for everyone to present their story within 7 minutes, as a way to tell others about your projects and passion, or a particularly interesting idea. There are three options to share your story:


1) POWERPOINT

You can use a visual support like Powerpoint. Please only use images (no text) to adhere to the (slightly adjusted) Pecha Kucha format of 10-14 slides, each shown for 30 seconds on automatic timer.


2) OBJECT

You can bring an object as illustration to your story, for example a sculpture you made, a book you love or a cake you designed (to share ;).


3) PERFORMANCE

You can give a performance, for example art-based or stand-up comedy style, music or singing.


Signing up to tell your story is easy, through the form on the right or a quick email to agnieszka@visualagency.org

VISUAL THINKING WORKSHOP

POSTPONED (closed event)


Visual Agency has been invited to facilite this two-day workshop for the research group AI-LeD at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, titled 'Problem-Finding and Framing Human Rights Challenges in the Age of Artificial Intelligence'.

Visual Collaboration

4-week course


Visualising ideas makes communicating with others easier. But how do you turn a discussion into images? In this 4 weeks course, you will learn various methods to think visually in groups, and you will develop a strategy to use visual communication confidently and successfully.


In the 4 workshops, we will approach the topic of facilitating visual meetings holistically by considering the various aspects of good meetings, from spatial considerations to the ethics of participation. You will learn how to create icons and how to prepare templates. You will also find out how to prepare a visual toolbox and what the best approach is to using post-it notes.


This course is for people who take on an active role in meetings and wish to develop their skills in visual facilitation.

Date: POSTPONED


Time: 18:30 - 21:00


Tickets: 1500 kr. (incl. tea, coffee and snacks)

Visual collaboration requires a thorough preparation, from spatial requirements to the right toolbox. You will practice drawing out ideas and things, in order to develop your own visual language.

We will discuss the responsibilities of visual facilitation, from creating an accessible platform to supporting engagement and participation.


WORKSHOP 4: VISUAL COMMUNICATION & PRACTICE

This is your chance to bring it all together and present an imaginary meeting, in order to learn from one another and to receive/give constructive feedback.

Developing Your Creativity

5-week course


Do you want to be more creative at work or in your own projects, but you lack inspiration? Do you wish to learn more about the creative thinking process? And do you miss connecting face-to-face with like-minded people? Then this course is for you!


This intensive 5-week course is for everyone who wants to understand how creativity can be stimulated through a hands-on approach. Whether you enjoy drawing, writing, singing, dancing or gardening (or anything else), this course enables you to cultivate your creative energy by engaging with a diversity of references to the arts, culture and wider societal developments.


You will:

  • learn more about contemporary art and culture in relation to Creativity and Flow;
  • reflect on your ideas by making a creative notebook;
  • engage in critical discussions through collaborative visualisation;
  • meet like-minded people in a stimulating environment;
  • and become motivated to dedicate more time for your creative projects.


There will be books, discussions, interactive games, collaborative visualisation and presentations at the end.

Date: POSTPONED


Time: 18:30 - 21:00

Programme


WORKSHOP 1: CREATIVITY & AESTHETICS

We start with an introduction to the topic by asking 'What is Creativity?' to understand the theory behind the concept. I provide examples from the practice of Fine Art, with a particular focus on 20th century painting and the concept of aesthetics. This will be followed by an explanation of what a Creative Notebook is and we will use collaborative visualisation to create a visual analysis of such a notebook. You will be instructed how to start your own notebook and encouraged to develop critical questions for your own project.


WORKSHOP 2: CREATIVITY & SPACE

Through the question 'Where is Creativity?' we learn more about the places in which Creativity takes place, in physical and abstract space. You will engage in a seminar on space in fine art, with a particular focus on minimalism, land art and (an)architecture. Furthermore, we will explore a variety of relevant books and you will be encouraged to start reading a book of your own choice.


WORKSHOP 3: CREATIVITY & IDENTITY

Working through the more abstract question of 'Who is Creativity?' we discuss how our personality and identity relate to being creative on a personal level. You will receive specific tips how to enhance personal creativity and how to cultivate flow. Our focus in art is on feminism, through photography and performance, but also other media that engage with identity. 


WORKSHOP 4: CREATIVITY & TECHNOLOGY

In this workshop on hi-tech, we will discuss the loss of its opposite, low-tech, and what this means for artistic expression. The leading question here is "How is Creativity?" because we focus on the medium and method. Using collaborative visualisation, we explore your own use of hi/low technology in your project and how this could be expanded into new territory.


WORKSHOP 5: CREATIVITY & POLITICS

In the final class, we deal with politics and ask 'Why Creativity?' to understand your own underlying motivations, as well as the bigger picture of politics in art through a focus on social/community art and protest art. You will also get the chance to present your project, as a way of summarising what you learned, and to get constructive feedback from the group..



After each workshop, you receive homework and notes from the class, and a link to photos from the workshop. You will also be invited to be part of the Visual Agency community on Facebook, where we stay in touch and continue to inspire each other.
