This short clip was taken from last week's gathering of collaborative facilitators, designers, knowledge workers and global practitioners of the MG Taylor process at "The Happening 2019" in Bali, Indonesia. It began as an auction on T-shirts with custom artwork provided by artists attending the event, in this particular case, the artwork was provided by Kelvy Bird.
Kelvy and I have about 50 years of experience between us in the realm of scribing, graphic facilitation, and real-time visual storytelling due to our shared roots as core staff members with MG Taylor Corporation in the mid-90s. Kelvy is not only a long-time colleague, but a cherished friend and one of the most distinctive and brilliant minds in the ever growing field of graphic facilitators. Her book, "Generative Scribing: A Social Art of the 21st Century" is a wonderful distillation of her unique process and also the history of graphic facilitation as it has evolved to become one of the best and most engaging tools an organization and business can use to communicate its message, share ideas and achieve breakthrough thinking through the assistance of real-time visual facilitation. It is a thought provoking read that I highly recommend.
The winning bid was for just over $300 for the opportunity to have a dialogue with both Kelvy and me to discuss our journeys as MG Taylor core staff members and experienced members of the visual practitioner community. Jayce Pei Yu Lee was the winning bidder and she will conduct a 1-hour conversation with Kelvy and I to talk about our process to China and the surrounding community of scribes sometime in the near future. I am looking forward to the dialogue!
