"I really enjoyed the workshop that Agnieszka organized. It was well structured and enabled all the participants to think in a novel and creative way."
"I've taken part in a number of projects with Agi and participated in one of her courses - discovering Visual Agency has changed so much for me! It's a fantastic concept to bring ideas together and capture them in a unique way."
"I was part of the first batch that completed the course on creativity. I have only positive experiences. The facilitator is a creative artist and an inspiring teacher, who takes you on a journey of creativity."
"Another great part of the course, was the opportunity to meet other expats in Copenhagen and make new friends.
Visual Agency facilitates meetings, workshops and courses using the low-tech method of collaborative visualisation. That's because the process of talking and drawing together encourages creative thinking. It also makes meetings fun. And memorable. You will take away a picture of the meetup that will remind you of all the ideas, you will feel inspired and energised, and you'll have experienced the satisfaction of great team-building.
Each event is designed as a unique experience, engaging the participants in a journey of exploration using a game-like approach. Working in small groups, you will challenge each other using question cards, you will share ideas by drawing together to see the bigger picture, and you will imagine alternatives through story-telling. In short, we stimulate curiosity, creativity and collaboration.
ABOUT THE VISUAL FACILITATOR:
Visual Agency is a Copenhagen-based social art practice run by Agnieszka Mlicka. With a background in Fine Art (BFA University of Oxford and MA University of the Arts London) and 6-year PhD research, Agnieszka has found a passion for bringing people together and stimulating collaborative, critical and creative thinking. The concept of gaining 'visual agency' emerged from this research, in which she explored how people can feel empowered by employing visual communication in meetings - not just post-it notes, but collaborative visualisation of ideas.
Agnieszka has designed and facilitated over 40 workshops, amongst others for the University of Copenhagen, the NGO Crossing Borders, Kulturhuset Islands Brygge, Endrup Skole in Frederiksberg, the Copenhagen Professional Networking Group at Internations and a diversity of informal groups (for example UAL:DK Alumni, CPH Creative Studio, Fionia Hus Neighbours Community). She has also facilitated spatial thinking workshops with architects and students of architecture in London, Florence and Hong Kong.
