Reflections on PGviz18

Michelle Laurie

Sometimes a workshop or meeting leaves me feeling better than when I walked in the room and this happened recently at PGviz18 in Prince George. This was a fitting place for our circle discussions which focused on facilitation techniques but also deeper societal issues. I am inspired.

The group, as it often is, is from varying backgrounds, brought together through facilitation work and the interest in taking the work further and deeper. We also practiced the art of facilitation itself, along with some live graphic recording or sketch noting.
