This training will focus on generative scribing as a visual practice that considers the energetic field surrounding the act of graphic recording. Generative scribes attend to an emerging future, while learning to “let go” of what no longer serves a current state, in order to “let come” an essential, new reality. This workshop will intentionally challenge a prevalent mental model that graphics support groups mainly by reflecting content; participants will stretch to understand themselves as dynamic, interdependent parts of the very systems for which they draw.
The program will orient around structures of time: over-time/chronological, in-time/snapshot, and right-time/intuitive. Within each structure, the group will explore a dominant framework that can inform their practice: Theory U as it relates to drawing over-time, conversational dynamics as it relates to drawing in-time, and containers and presencing as they relate to drawing in-time.
