Experiment with colors and brushes to help groups reconstruct their individual and collective learning!

During this exercise we listen to each other to interpret and paint our experiences.

Our experience using this technique:

Luis, a Colombian grass movements activist, came up with this technique to help participants of RecrearMagnify 2016 (Medellín, Colombia) reflect on what the two weeks of cohabiting meant to them. For the group, the exercise represented a way to reflect both individually and collectively on the meaning of our work together.
