Checklist

A great workshop requires a bit of preparation. Here you find the preflight checklists: crossing all items off will set you up for a successful and enjoyable workshop.

People

  • Organise the workshop participants into groups of five people, plus or minus one each.
  • Keep the number of groups to at most four in a room. It will get noisy and distracting otherwise.
  • Appoint workshop facilitators: one for every two groups is a good ratio.
Participants learn, reflect and connect as part of their group. Keep this opportunity for team building in mind when assigning groups.

Venue

  • Facility to present the instruction deck visible to all participants at all times during the workshop
  • Space for each group to put two A0-sized canvases side by side. Tables or walls work equally well.
  • Space for facilitators and participants alike to move around without obstructions.
  • A place to service water, tea and coffee, and light refreshments during the workshop.
  • A place for participants to withdraw from the proceedings and recharge a bit.
Tables should measure 80x160 cm or better to accommodate for a group's work effort. Make sure each participant has at least 90 cm of spare room.

Materials

  • Pens for all participants; Sharpie markers are a good choice.
  • Sticky notes in at least two colours, and in 3x3" and 3x5" sizes.
