Will be attending the NCDD Conference in Reston Va starting today.

Will also be presenting a session tomorrow:
“I See What You Mean!” Using Visuals to Engage Communities”

When complex ideas and information are captured and shared graphically, people engage more deeply and their commitment to cooperation and collaboration increases. In this interactive session, the facilitators will share a kit bag of visual artifacts they have used to facilitate public meetings involving contentious community issues. Explore two different case studies: one around increasing public engagement in rural communities; the other involving working to create more inclusive conversations about urban visioning. The session also explores the stages of issue engagement.
