What is graphic facilitation?

Graphic facilitation – or visual scribing – is used to display ideas and discussions in a summarized
and catchy way. By using visuals, we are speaking to the most elementary part of the brain that has been used to make sense of the world from visuals since prehistorical ages. The outcome is friendly and easy-to-share medium, that facilitates understanding and memorization of the main concepts it presents.

What is it for?

It is used to summarize and share ideas, usually during meetings
and design thinking workshops as well as conferences.

Below are live graphic facilitations realized at NEXUS Summit in Cairo, Egypt, in December 2018.
The focus was on climate change and education and how to leverage global solutions.



How is it done?

  1. PAPER
    It can be done live on large posters, becoming a source of attraction and collaboration. You can keep the poster when it’s done and I will also make a digital version.

    By connecting my tablet to a screen, the drawings are transcribed directly through the screen while I make them live. This allows for editing as opposed to the paper format.
