Empower! Visuals and Evaluation for Social Change
Friday, 13 May

Social programs and social change initiatives operate within complex
environments. When evaluating these initiatives traditional approaches are
not always appropriate.  For example, linear models can downplay assumptions
and create the illusion that the work being done is simple. Graphics and
visuals can be used as both a tool set and a process to help evaluators and
stakeholders explore context, clarify focus, discuss findings, and
understand their meaning.
Sometimes our imaginations are sparked by a visual where words fail us.
When communities plan and imagine their futures, when teams consider the
possible outcomes for their projects, when groups create maps to track their
progress ­ these are all opportunities to use visuals to engage and deepen
community dialogue.

Graphic Fundamentals
Want to use graphic recording in your group work and for community-based and
participatory research? No previous drawing experience necessary!

 This training is for YOU if you want:
* Enhanced engagement from your employees and clients
* Participant feedback and participation on the high setting
* Conscious, inclusive group dynamics
* Teams that work together more harmoniously
No matter how small or big your talent, you will take your first visual
steps on large paper and learn how to use small details to make spaces look
clear, attractive, and lively. You will work alone and in small groups and
there will be lots of time to answer your questions.You will learn
techniques to identify key ideas and highlight content through:
Lettering- legible and fast
Bullets- separate points and enhance clarity
Colour- organizes and draws attention
Connectors- organize ideas and show patterns
People/ Expressions- create an emotional connection
Containers- highlight and group ideas
