Applying Graphic Facilitation in New Contexts

Michelle Laurie

Participatory Facilitation Techniques

Michelle Laurie

A few weeks ago I facilitated a 1.5 Graphic Recording of Samoan Circle discussion by Lisa Theissen. During the discussion, we graphically recorded the discussion on the adjacent wall. Everything was graphically recorded on a large format wall template.
