Graphic Recording, Visual Facilitation: making the invisible visible (and beautiful)

Remember what I said here about the nmc being an organization that celebrates creativity, innovation, and the importance of play? This spirit probably could not be more clearly apparent in their remarkable way of chronicling the work they do in their meetings when they ask their members for ideas, opinions, interpretations.
