How many times have you gone away from a sustainability event feeling depressed at the scale of the challenge and having no idea how things are actually going to change? The issues are talked about in a way that leaves you paralysed, not knowing what to do. They’re too abstract, too large and too “other” for you to make sense of. There’s no space for your emotional reactions.
Join us in a workshop where you’ll experience how pictures and dialogue techniques can be used to move the conversation to a deeper level that is more meaningful for each person. Using pictures and dialogue to help people explore and understand what issues are important for them personally leaves them better placed to make decisions about what actions they want to take and at what scale.
The workshop is going to be highly participative so come prepared for some drawing (no skill required) and discussion. We’ll give you some ideas to take away of how you might be able to use drawing in your own work.
Julian Burton, Sam Deeks and Amy Morton work for Delta7, a change agency that helps to transform organisations “one conversation at a time”. They create big pictures, compelling stories and space for people to have more honest, creative and focused dialogue.
