“Systems Scribing is a visual practice that combines scribing—visually representing ideas while people talk—with systems thinking. This is an emerging, tangible approach to representing dynamics, occurring in the moment and over time, between a scribe and a social body.” — k.b.
During her 90-minute workshop with 143 practitioners worldwide, Kelvy Bird shares her personal journey, combining art, science, facilitation, and systems thinking.
She walks us through the origins of her philosophy as articulated in her 2018 publication, Generative Scribing: A Social Art of the 21st Century, and the evolution of the practice.
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.
