„Scribing – visually representing ideas while people talk – is a distinct social art form that facilitates group learning and cultural memory. Scribes listen and draw simultaneously, creating large pictures that integrate content, prompt insight, and aid with decision-making.

What You’ll Learn
... and as a bonus experience three sociodramas and get to know sociodrama as a tool for group work.
Session 1 - Foundation
19th March 2021, 14:00 - 17:00 CET
In session one we’ll get to know each other and cover the basic theoretic elements of generative scribing.
Session 2 - 7 Practice and Reflection
After session one, we will alternate between two kinds of sessions: practice and reflection sessions.
Live scribing of a sociodrama directed and performed by the students of the sociodrama class.
24th March 2021, 13:00 - 15:15h CET – practice
26th March 2021, 14:00 - 16:00 CET – reflection
31st March 2021, 13:00 - 15:15h CET – practice
2nd April 2021, 14:00 - 16:00 CET – reflection
7th April 2021, 13:00 - 15:15h CET – practice
9th April 2021, 14:00 - 16:00 CET – reflection
Session 8 – Wrap Up
16th April 2021, 14:00 - 16:00 CET
Session eight will be all about stepping out of the training and into serving groups in real life:
The sessions can not be booked individually.
Every participant gets a certificate after completion.
All sessions will take place on zoom. You will need a quiet workplace, a computer, a webcam, a microphone, headphones or speakers (those integrated in your laptop will be sufficient) and, a stable internet connection.
To follow the sociodrama sessions you need to understand English. The other sessions will be in English too unless all participants should happen to speak German. In that case, we might switch to German.

Who Will Be Teaching?
My name is Marie-Pascale Gafinen and I’m an illustrator focussing on communicating sustainability topics. I have been working as a Graphic Recorder for 5 years. In 2018 I took my first course on Generative Scribing with Kelvy Bird. More courses followed in 2019 and 2020. Since then I have supported 28 sessions with generative scribings, both digital and analog. Many of them with my colleagues Jörg Jelden and Valentin Heyde, who are part of the trainer team running the sociodrama course but also during the GAIA sessions in the DACH region which were part of a worldwide series of online events initiated by the Presencing Institute.
As a passionate lifelong learner, I consider myself both a student and a teacher at the same time.
So far I’ve taught Visual Thinking and Visual Facilitation – the latter with a focus on intercultural settings. I worked with all kinds of target groups from school teachers to managers, from art students to climate scientists. Creating a container for all my students to thrive is very dear to my heart!
