Mind’s Eye Creative Community Creativity Awards

Are you doing awesome work in your community? We want to award you!

Mind’s Eye Creative Community Creativity Awards gives charities and non-profits who may not be able to afford that opportunity to work with Mind’s Eye Creative through graphic facilitation.  The goal of the program is to support organizations that are doing awesome community development work in Nova Scotia. 

Who you’d be working with:

Ashton Rodenhiser is an international graphic recorder and owner of Mind’s Eye Creative Consulting. Most days you’ll find her literally drawing out the Big Picture during presentations and meetings to help folks gain clarity and connect deeper with what’s being said and remember it long-term. She helps create a shared understanding through graphic facilitation and scribing the information for everyone to reflect on during and after events and sessions. She loves doodling, drawing, illustrating and helping see their impact through visual language.
