Welcome home!

In May, Anne Lehmann and I worked for the German development organization AGEH at a conference with the charity Brot für die Welt.

Our mission was to visualize stories told by development workers who had recently returned to Germany from abroad. While most of these stories originated in places like rural Kenya or Colombia, they inevitably dealt with the changes in perspective experienced by the development workers when they returned home, and their struggles to reconcile their views with those who had stayed behind.

I found some of those stories deeply moving, some where funny, and some were quite sad – but in all cases I was impressed by the narrators’ dedication to make the world a better place. I hope, we also made a small contribution to that goal by our graphic recordings.

Media and development

Last year, I did the graphic recording at the Forum Media and Development (Forum Medien und Entwicklung, FoME) conference in Berlin. You can find the images on my Flickr page. Now, the FoME website has been relaunched, with my graphic recordings featured prominently on the landing page. I think it looks great!

Day of German Diversity

Last week, I went to Stuttgart to do some graphic recording at the Day of German Diversity, organized by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Partnership with Africa Foundation. I was accompanied by Ellen and Suse from 123comics, who worked with me on recording the working groups taking place during the conference. It was a great experience to work with them, and I think the results really capture the spirit of the conference.
