River of Life; results exercise
At the first day of the workshop on process documentation (PD), participants got to know each other a bit better using the ‘River of Life’ methodology. Six to eight participants sit around a table and make a drawing of their life up to today; the here and now. The centre is a ‘River of Life’ with highlights, when needed described above. Underneath there is room for expectations and fears. When all are ready, participants tell each other what the drawings depict. exercise

This methodology is very useful for bigger groups (20+ participants) because it is time-effective, whereas a plenary session to introduce participants to each other is shallow, less intimate and very time consuming.
