Graphic Facilitation Training for Evaluators!

 

A one-day, hands-on introduction to visual thinking
and graphic facilitation.

The power to clarify thinking, create shared understanding and to make positive change is at your fingertips. All you need is paper and pen.

In this interactive and engaging full-day workshop, Brandy Agerbeck shares her solid gold lessons from over 20 years’ experience as a graphic facilitator creating live, large-scale drawings for her clients. She’ll give you concrete, accessible tips on HOW to reclaim drawing as your best thinking tool and important reasons WHY visuals are vital to helping groups understanding and improve their work.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn the basic principles of graphic facilitation, practice it, and understand some of the business basics (e.g., hiring a graphic facilitator, consulting as a graphic facilitator)
  • Bring together a diverse group of evaluators, artists, and communication design students for peer mentorship
Why Graphic Facilitation?

In 2016, ¡Milwaukee Evaluation! Inc. identified one of the leaders in graphic facilitation, Brandy Agerbeck, was right next door in Chicago! We’ve been working ever since to bring her to Wisconsin. In partnership with the Milwaukee Art Institute and Design (MIAD), we are excited to bring you this training. 3 out of 4 learners are visual thinkers. Millennials are taking the reigns – leading in all sectors from government to nonprofit. They use visual tools and social media more than their predecessors. To facilitate evaluation use, we need to do things differently – like getting data out there that speaks to visual decision-makers. We also see the void of this skill in the Milwaukee area (and likely the state). This event is the first step in getting more graphic facilitators working in our community providing this service – and it’s starting with the ¡Milwaukee Evaluation! Inc. community.

We also want to make connections to the graphic illustrators and artists so we invited MIAD to join us. At the training there will be lots of opportunity to work with artists, artist communities of practice from around the state, and artists of color. Thank you Dale Schilder, Chair of Graphic Illustration for joining us on this journey!

You can Draw
Can evaluators draw a square box? YES!!!! We asked Brandy if evaluators could really do her training. She said yes, we know the content which makes us the best type of training participant. The drawing part is easy, distilling the content to obtain an accurate record of the meeting is A LOT harder!
Don’t live in Milwaukee? Come anyway!
We are sharing the dates early so that we can have as many non-Milwaukee evaluators and artists participate as possible. Space is limited and we are inviting artists from many communities to join us so book today!
