Mapping silence

Posted by Selina Schepers on Saturday September 4th 2010 at 10:21

On 04/09/2010, Social Spaces organised a mapping with Studio zonder Titel (*) in Eindhoven (NL). The participants in the mapping mapped a ‘Werkplaats van de Stilte’.

The mapping session in Eindhoven consisted of four rounds. There were three groups, each lead by a moderator who facilitated the session. In the first round of the session, the group had to indicate thekey values, key people and important spaces, knowledge and tools that they wanted to include in their working place for silence. The first round ended by locking three things that the group found the most important on their map. In the second round, the map and a presenter (one of the participants of the group) switched places with the map and the presenter of one of the other groups. The other group had to bomb the elements of the map that they didn’t like or didn’t agree with and think of possible opportunities, chances or alternatives for the elements they had just bombed. In next round, the participants of the third group had to bomb the map of the first group and find possible opportunities again. In the final round, the presenters switched tables again and the participants of this group had to point out three things that they really liked about the map of the other group. Finally, the groups joined each other and the presenters presented the three maps.
