About this Event


		May 2021 Graphic Recording Training - Online! tix on sale 9am PST image

Do you spend a lot of your time in meetings wondering, “What is this meeting about? Is this the best use of our time?"

That doesn't sound fun. Drawing Change can show you a better way. We want you to create meetings with more belonging and connection – using visual facilitation and graphic recording. And of course, this new training will be held online! 

Our foundational workshop will help you hone your listening and drawing skills to make meaning, increase collaboration, and solve problems. No pre-recorded videos - this is a small group learning environment with 3 trainers, and a max of 12 participants. 

May 15 -17, 2021 online. On May 15 and 16, 9am to 4pm with 4-5 hours of instruction each day, Pacific Standard Time; plus May 17th from 9-11:30am PST

October 10 -12, 2021 online. On Oct 10 and 11, 9am to 4pm with 4-5 hours of instruction each day, Pacific Standard Time, plus Oct 12th from 9-11:30 PST

What does the agenda cover?

Before Day 1

Optional online social the evening before the workshop

Day 1: Focus on Graphic Recording

  • Building your visual vocabulary (even if you think you “can’t draw”)
  • Lettering five ways: bring your flip charts to the next level
  • Layouts and how to structure the page
  • Hands on-practice
  • Overview of the field, including conversations about ethics, power, and responsibilities
  • Resources for your success

Day 2: Focus on Graphic Facilitation

  • Visual tools for facilitating meetings - drawing and talking
  • Choosing the right tools
  • Co-creating the agenda
  • Talking circle about cultural safety and visuals, led by Indigenous graphic recorders

Day 3: Lab (optional, but included in the ticket price)

This is more chance to practice, from 9 am until 11:30am. This is your chance for supportive feed-forward and an opportunity to integrate all of your learning. We will practice graphic recording in a supportive environment, answer your business questions and create your action plan.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for facilitators, educators, managers, and innovators – anyone who finds themselves working with groups (isn’t that everyone?). You don’t need to be a super-sketcher to be able to communicate visually. If you’ve ever drawn two overlapping circles to explain something, you’re already using visual thinking. This workshop will enhance how you connect ideas, listen and create visual summaries for meetings and events. Our workshops generally attract people who want a unique approach to using visuals with a lens of diversity, inclusion, and equity, as well.

What’s included?

FULL KIT of drawing supplies valued at over $100. A really generous kit of markers and supplies so you can start your visual practice right away. And we'll mail you paper, too!

What does the training cost?

The FIRST 6 spaces get the Early Bird Rate for 2020: $1500 Canadian + GST

6 spaces for Regular Rate: $1900 Canadian + GST

Payment plan options available by request. Please contact: hello@drawingchange.com.

What if I can’t afford the full rate?

Too many professional development opportunities are only for those who can afford it – and cost shouldn’t be a barrier for making the world a better place.

Drawing Change wants to spread our skills to people working in community, grassroots, and social justice movements. That’s why we offer community scholar spots, and give priority to self-identified Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour folks who are under 30(ish). Applications will open again for 2021 on our website.

Join us! can't wait to meet you.

PS: And if you're curious ... will this work on Zoom? for the last year, Sam and the team have been graphic recording and facilitating for groups around the world. We've facilitated meetings of up to 950 people at a time, so we've got a great handle on how to make online learning fun and engaging. This intimate learning environment is going to be fun, and a safe place to try learning new things together!
