Visioning through Collage
Personal Visioning Process
Enjoy a high impact day of creative exercises and activities designed to kick-start you toward identifying your vision and creating a strong personal image of your desired future in the form of a collage. Participants report that they use their personal vision collage as an anchor and a reference that guides them toward the fulfillment and satisfaction that comes from staying on course aligned with what’s important. The collage making process is fun and “goof – proof” with no previous artistic abilities required.
“My collage is beside my bed and I’m certain that it had a lot to do with getting me to where I am now. Try anything and everything your heart desires …something will turn up when you least expect it: And after all, so much of this game is about the journey.” A.B.
Visioning for Teams or Clients

Elements of brainstorming, observation, serious play, staying present, prioritizing, metaphor and reflection are all parts of this artistic processes that can also enhance leadership development. This work can be integrated into your facilitation design so that the whole process flows and is linked back to your outcomes and objectives.

Pat Brown was the first manager of programming for “Wellspring” to bring Sandy on board. Wellspring is a network of centres that provide emotional and psychological support, free of charge, to individuals and families living with cancer.
“ As a part of Wellspring’s Discussion Series and Workshop program offerings, we have included ‘collage making’ ” for our members. I have attended one of Sandy’s open workshops in the past and knew that this would be a wonderful benefit for both cancer patients and their caregivers. “
