Humanities Festival: Small Gestures: Its the Little
society, cities, transportation, industrialization, journalism,
enjoy going to the Chicago
Humanities Festival. This year I made it to two talks,
this one and Inventing
Kindergarten. This was a super interesting panel of
four men talking about how small acts can build up to large
movements. Basically, the top half of the drawing was
Columbia College industrial design professor Kevin
Henry speaking (the mining pyramid clockwise to participation).
The circle at 4:00 on the clock was Columbia College professor
and bicycle enthusiast Zack
Furness. At 6:00 and the great connecting key point
in the upper left was University of Chicago doctoral student
Cohen. The lower right corner was Chicago web developer
Holovaty who introduced his project EveryBlock.com,
that got the crowd buzzing.
facilitator Brandy Agerbeck creates conceptual maps of conversations.
Since 1996, her drawing and thinking skills have facilitated
groups of 2 to 1000 across industries. Brandy's images help
people navigate the complex world around them and bring clarity
to their work.
