Systems scribing is a visual practice that combines scribing—visually representing ideas while people talk—with systems thinking.

This is a new, tangible approach to representing dynamics, occurring in the moment and over time, between a scribe and a social body. This discipline develops a critical skill to facilitate a system’s ability to see and sense itself, as well as crystalize ideas into action.

Join us for a highly participatory 90-minute workshop where Kelvy Bird will share the framework and thinking behind systems scribing, combined with guided hands-on individual practice and open conversation regarding the application of this method to scribing, facilitation, and other practices.

Be prepared to draw at any scale that is comfortable for you, on paper or digitally. And be prepared to share!

This online workshop is free to all participants. Members of our TVW Learning Community on Mighty Networks will have access to the recording and resources.
