Project description

Our training course “Media SHAPERS” is aiming to provide basic skills and experiences to youth workers in use of media, visual
thinking and graphic facilitation methods in their youth work. Media and Visual thinking is a way to organize your thoughts and improve your ability to think and communicate. It’s a great way to convey complex or potentially confusing information. If your ideas can’t be drawn, they can’t be done.

Visual thinking is a vital skill for developing new ideas, communicating those ideas effectively and collaborating with others to make them real.

Drawing is a natural process for thinking, exploring ideas and learning. Every child enjoys drawing — but at some point in our lives we learn that drawing is the province of artists. This is a fallacy. You can draw and when you were a kid you knew it. You just forgot. During this training course we will develope the graphic facilitation skills (both manual and digital) that can be used in the context of non-formal learning and youth work. This is an introductory course to graphical facilitation and visual thinking.

It is addressed to beginners and no prior knowledge in drawing or digital graphic facilitation is required. We will develop us as media and visual thinkers starting from the basics.
