Tasting the Future Graphic Facilitation by Claire Holgate @clairehol

I’ve decided to feature Claire Holgate’s work as it was her first graphic facilitation gig and she did an amazing job!  Be sure to stop by and say hi on twitter @clairehol.

What follows is Claire’s description of the event and her experience…

“This was my first attempt at a full day’s graphic harvesting at a workshop about food sustainability. The subject matter was fascinating and the initiative – Tasting the Future – is a fantastic network of amazing sustainability practitioners from many organisations in the UK (http://tastingthefuture.ning.com).  As it was my first proper ‘gig’, I found it daunting when I first put pen to paper, but then it just sort of…. happened.  I didn’t have any pre-thoughts about what exactly I was going to do and I was amazed that the graphics just appeared, as if by magic, but it was definitely me doing the drawing!  I’d be interested to hear if other people experience the same thing when they’re starting out.”

The venue on a beautiful June day in London – City Hall, we were on the top floor, dubbed ‘London’s Living Room’.  FANTASTIC views & lots of inspiration…


Starting out….a big load of blank paper before me….!


Discussions started….


I used post-it notes when I was struggling to keep up with the good stuff coming out of discussions…. it helped :)


And here it is, three quarters of the way through, just the rounding up to add on the end…..

 And this was the final section, pulling out key themes and comments at the end of the day.

    Hi there Allen,

    Thank you so much for featuring my work. I had a great time at this session and was really inspired by the fantastic conversations happening (largely behind me!). I wonder whether graphic recording is much harder if you find the subject matter less engaging….?

    Keep up the great work, I love the site.

    Claire :)
