Had a great time leading a mini-workshop on Visual Thinking for Collaboration at Civic Hall in NYC. Civic Hall is:
"...a one-of-a-kind community center for the world’s civic innovators. We are a space where social entrepreneurs, change-makers, government employees, hackers, academics, journalists, and artists can share knowledge, build tools, and solve problems together."
A few comments from participants: "Very cool workshop!" "Helpful for organizing" "It was useful to put an image with words. Most of the time images are easier to understand." "Gave me a new way of looking at what my plans are in life." The participants varied from a librarian turned civic tech consultant, a documentary film maker, a startup founder, and PR company owner.
I use Civic Hall as my home base when I'm not on-site with clients. I want to foster an even more collaborative atmosphere at Civic Hall. This was one of my contributions to that goal. I building more collaboration skills for the civically inclined is in line with the Visualize Good mission of creating a better world through visual thinking.
