01 Jun 2012 Spring Symposium – IAP2 BC
The International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) BC Chapter held their annual Spring Symposium in Vancouver in May. The theme of this year? Creative Engagement! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to present graphic recording at this event and make connections with so many like-minded folks working in the public engagement field.
My presentation covered the basics of graphic recording — which has its roots in cave paintings, Egyptian hieroglyphs, and medieval paintings (which were used to convey Biblical stories when much of the population was illiterate!). The group also brainstormed new creative ways to use graphic recording — it was inspiring to hear so many fantastic ideas! Delaney & Associates, who attended the conference, later did a blog post about the day!
