240 people connected the dots at EuViz 2014 in Berlin

For three days 240 people from all over the world came together in Berlin for EuViz 2014, the European conference for visual thinkers, practitioners and facilitators.  The intention was to “connect the dots” — joining practitioners, applications, leading edge thinking and other practice fields in an event that promised a deep dive into visual practice.
 
The conference was hosted by Neuland and Kommunikationslotsen. The International Forum of Visual Practitioners was co-host, and thrilled to hold its annual conference in Europe for the first time.

The conference featured a highly interactive format, designed to further strengthen the visual practice community and explore some of the practice’s leading edges.  Featured for the first time this year were Tracks, a two session deep dive into five selected topics and aiming to engage participants of all levels in exploring research, new thought and inquiry into areas where visual practice can make a difference.  A conversation with elders in the field and collective storytelling helped to strengthen understanding and practitioner connections.  Twenty-two workshop sessions offered the opportunity to gain specific knowledge and skills.

The fact the conference was sold out well before the deadline for registrations demonstrates the growing interest in visual practice, especially in Europe.  Participants came from 26 countries and travelled as far afield as Australia and Asia.  Many said the event exceeded their expectations for learning, connection and professionalism.  And everyone talked about the energy, excitement and fun to be had when creative people come together to share.

Participant and Core team member Sandra Dirks summed it up:  “All these crazy people who work in and with groups with visualizations. Or even without groups, and only with visualizations. Hach! (German expression for delight)”

EuViz 2014 is the European conference for Visual Thinkers, Practitioners, Graphic Recorders and Facilitators.

The visual revolution is on its way: shaping, facilitating and constructing the 21st century – its ideas, challenges, communities and organizations. Visualization is a gift for every profession or organization. EuViz 2014 will explore this gift and will make it more accessible for people and professionals of all kinds. EuViz will be a conference as well as an experience.

At EuViz 2014 we will be gathering around the fire of visual thinking and practice to connect the dots of the field for the world.

We will do this by:
• Discovering patterns across cultures, industries and practices.
• Expanding views on purposes, application and achievements.
• Exploring individual and collective possibilities and actions.
