Visual Recorder, I'm New to the World Cafe
If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
I'm just revising my profile to emphasis my current practice as visual facilitator and graphic recorder in the context of various facilitation practices as well as Open Space and World Café events.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
I'm developing the World Café and graphic facilitation in France. Bilingual English/French, from the U.S., living in Paris, with degrees in philosophy, art, and communication the US and France, and prior to starting a business as a graphic facilitator, I've had a variety of jobs that include art direction, teaching, fine arts (personal work and community public art), medical communications, and conference interpreting. I'd like to get involved in organizing world cafés here in France and contributing as a visual recorder/facilitator.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
Thank you, Roberta. :) I took the Grove's course in visual facilitation. It made all the difference in my work. You know, of course, that David Sibbet is keynoting at the conference in August. Exciting stuff!
Thanks for your advice, I'll try to download the kml file. Probably it's there, I just couldn't get to it ( could only see 3 placemarks for Paris).
Great work! very impressive...
All the best
Hey Roberta, thank you :)
so sorry for that... i will check that soon (when i am on a faster computer, because it takes quite some capacity to deal with 1650 placemarks) - i was automatically loading all the placemarks in... maybe the system did not recognize your location? or there is someone else in Paris and your placemark is "hidden" behind this person? if you are up for it you can download the .kml file under the map and open it with Google Earth, it should show more than one placemark per city... and it's an amazing perspective :)
Bonjour Roberta --- welcome to the World Café. I'm pretty new here too, actually. I'm glad you contacted me. I sent you a friend invitation. I'll have more time to talk next week, am preparing for a trip to Aix-les-Bains for this event: http://www.terre-du-ciel.fr/ in which my wife and I are participating. I look forward to more exchange with you soon.
I'm actually german a student of philosophy and economics staying in Paris studying philosophy at the Sorbonne for (almost) one year. I'm staying in a Foyer in the 17th Arrondissement (Rue Pierre Demours). I first got to know World Cafe through Ullrich and Sabine Soeder who held one in my hometown Dresden. I "discovered" the World Cafe when I was organising a conference together with some fellow students at my home-university in Bayreuth, Germany. In February this year I took part in a workshop held by Chris Chopyak and Sabine Soeder.
I would love to meet you and learn about your World Cafe experience.
