Project Overview

This is an introductory course to graphical facilitation and is addressed to beginners and no prior knowledge in drawing and animation is required. We will guide participants through every step. The Erasmus+ project “Digital Illustrative Skills” consists on using software and projection screens in performing the graphical facilitation. There are numerous advantages in using graphical facilitation digitally, among the most important one being: the reuse of the visual elements that compose the visual vocabulary, the ease of showing relations between the visual elements, the low cost compared to the materials of hard copy graphical facilitation, capacity to be promoted in the online/offline environment. Objectives of the project are to develop practical skill and competence on how to apply digital graphical facilitation techniques and methods in youth work activities, increasing the capacity of organizing trainings, events and other youth activities using digital graphical facilitation methods and techniques.
