Can You Dig It graphics

Always a great pleasure to work with a group that I’ve admired – the Can You Dig It gardeners – bringing together all my passions for art, social justice, inclusion and gardening!  From a visioning session facilitated by James Pratt, these graphics were used in the planning report that came out of a great day.                   Continue reading Can You Dig It graphics

Rhizomatic Learning: Cheating as Learning #rhizo14

Interesting to try to keep up with all the posts about this Week One idea of cheating as learning in this class on rhizomatic learning.  So many perspectives.  I related to one about the general discomfort around the idea of cheating, and then another person said why not call it “changing the rules” – but as I think it all through, at least from the perspective I’m taking, I think I like the idea of cheating as a conversation starter.

We had nothing to do with the first of these projects, “Know Your Rights: A Guide for Self Advocates,” which has now gone from a booklet to a great little film on YouTube (with a really great voiceover by self advocate Gladys Duran), but my colleague Susan Stanfield and I were very involved in the second, “Support Networks: A Guide for Self Advocates,” and now she, Shelley Nessmann … Continue reading working on a new “planning to address vulnerabilities” booklet for people with disabilities #graphicfacilitation
