Long story short

Visuals serve as key facilitative aids for collective seeing and navigation. Live scribing–giving form to the social body–is a method especially suited to address today’s great challenges. As visual practitioners, we face a particular need and opportunity to expand the awareness, mindsets, and choices that feed our outward expression.

In these workshops, we combine theory, practice, and reflection to explore the following:

  • A model of practice that grounds inner cultivation
  • Ways to locate and relax into our most authentic selves
  • Levels of listening, systems thinking, discernment, and generative scribing
  • What it means to draw from, and for, an emerging future reality
  • Mapping next steps for projects and/or professional development

“These 3 days in Bologna have been a great learning sharing and meeting experience for me. What profoundly touched me is the step ahead I made on “what’s behind the drawing part of what I do”. I realized all the way I’ve been through over the past 10 years and it gives me both pride and humility.”

“This workshop is a dive into the deeper and hidden part of visual practices as well as a dive with your inner self.”

“Visual Practice Workshop – A beautiful & incredibile generous meet-ing with precious people to:
Live the diversity in listening levels,
Become one with the seeing drawing marker
Be a transforming up-creating model, pattern and system of collective, connected and connective (human) nature yourself.
All this in a perfect balance between theory & practice, single & group, fast & slow, consciousness & light-heartedlyness, east & west, lines & dots, heritage & exnovation, scriber & speaker, in & out, loud & silent, bold & timid, known & unknown, reflections & pragmatic proto-typing, logic& magic:-)
For me Visual Practice is, was and will be a continous natural learning path full of curiosity, serious fun & yes, love. And after this workshop it’s an even more well grounded re-confirmed decision, part of my life & way of being. I’m convinced we can change the world, onewhiteboard@time:-) Thanks to all who were @Bologna, who weren’t there but where there anyway and to all who’ll be there, but in other places:-).”
