Sculpturing Change

Using the visual arts to tell a story or portray vision or reality can be a powerful tool. SPNO has used "sculpturing change" as a method of analysis in some of its REFLECTIONS sessions. David Hasbury introduced this approach to SPNO. David is a graphic artist and facilitator and Consulting Associate with SPNO.

The exercise requires arts and crafts materials displayed in a central area. When the question for portrayal is posed, community groups are invited to create and present their answer to the question by using the arts materials. After groups create their sculptures, there is a "Gallery Tour" in which the all participants move from one arts display to the next and listen to each group present and explain their sculpture in answer to the question that as framed.
