Graphic facilitation is a format particularly useful when you need to see what you mean and how all
the parts fit together to drive toward action. It brings creative energy and passion to any meeting.
This is a practice of using words and pictures to create a concept map of the conversation before, during and after its happening. The graphic facilitator reflects the ideas of the participants in the process through metaphors, models, visual maps in order to enable ideas to be clarified, heard and taken action upon during the collective work.
This powerful method combines the traditional facilitation with visual tools and activities, helping gain more insights, focus, actions and results, while creating engagement of all the participants in the process.
In Graphic Recording the visual practitioner captures every idea as it still floats in the ears of the audience and transfers it on a big 3-meters long white canvas in the form of key words, images and metaphors which gives depth and character of the discussion. The graphic recorders don’t facilitate the discussion, they just capture it. Graphic Recording е is extremely useful for any event, conference, strategic meeting, team discussion, etc. As compared with the standard power point presentations where slides quickly pass away hand-in-hand with the words, the graphic wall canvas stays during the whole event.
