We always love to embrace the creative world in all that we do and as such, are delighted to launch Outdoor Interactive Theatre. It’s Part game, part theatre, part pub crawl and is making a huge splash as a non-traditional way to have a fantastic time with your team mates. Interactive theatre is unlike anything found in your traditional theatre setting (or team building program for that matter). Parajumpers Lightweight Perfect Gilet Instead of sitting, the audience is sent on an actual journey through the streets of the city. Based on a concept that has been highly successful in New York, and London, we are now running the program in Sydney and Melbourne. Along with our Shoot! program, its a great way to be outdoors and not get to sweaty! The premise: You have been offered a share in $50 million dollars – All you have to do is deliver one simple message. Sounds easy enough right? Well think again! Not only will the mob be hot on your tail but so is the local law enforcement, detectives, private investigators and anyone else the mob pays off! Participants are sent on a mission, aided by clues and mysterious cast members scattered throughout various locations in the city: park benches, iconic landmarks, bars, wharfs, and back alleys. Professional actors take you on a crazy, exciting adventure throughout the streets of Sydney or Melbourne. Your team, the audience navigate the city streets, piecing together clues of an absorbing and entertaining plot “The Messenger”. Interactive Theatre promises to provide an experience unlike anything you have ever done. This is definitely not an ‘un-Amazing Race’. You wont find a branded polo shirt anywhere! Set in the best parts of Sydney and Melbourne, you will be ‘contacted’ with a time and place where it is all going down. mu legend zen online Visualfunk’s Interactive Theatre’s locations, are of course kept hush-hush – it’s all part of the fun. So want some team building that is really creative, fun and UNIQUE? We would love to have a chat! Enquire here. “The characters are not easily spotted, appearing, then fading back into the...

VisualFunk was recently invited to hold an art team building program for UnitingCare West at their offices in Parramatta. Working with the client, we decided that the best program for the team was the “My Story” program which combines indigenous art with a modern art spin. As the team entered the room to the wonderful sounds of a didgeridoo they came face to face with our co-facilitator Russ, who is from an Aboriginal clan in Moree. Russ didn’t come alone though, he brought all sorts of artifacts such as boomerangs, spears, clubs etc., to give even more insight into the fascinating world of indigenous life. Russ told the story of how in their culture, Aboriginals didn’t record their history with the written word, but rather, painted wonderful pictures to tell their stories. Jackets casual This is great logic, as the written word is forgotten much quicker than visual images. adidas bounce Simon from VisualFunk then took the participants through a ‘modern’ art lesson and asked the team to concentrate on writing a list of which words tell their own team story – is it collaboration? teamwork? relationships? passion? organisational values? The teams were then presented with canvesses to literally translate their ‘words’ into art using a basic palette of colours. Aboriginal symbols and colours were incorporated – even hand prints! The result? Four wonderful creative handpainted canvesses which the team can hang on the walls of their offices to remind them of the wonderful afternoon they had creating when they didn’t think they could – it was an impressive journey to...

Graphic Facilitation: Making Ideas Come Alive I had a great time recently emceeing a 2 day conference on the Gold Coast. I kept myself very busy as I was also the Visual Facilitator for the event. It was a great mix of the things I love to do – draw and talk! As with previous conferences where I was fulfilling a similar role, I noticed some great things that Graphic Facilitation and Visual Communication can bring to the audience. 1- It provides a massive point of interest. I had some great chats with people as they were walking in and out between breaks about what I was doing, recording and visualising. The drawings held people. T-shirts tech long sleeve The visuals got people attention. The visuals held people attention. 2- The use of visuals and graphics is a great conversation starter. Every time that delegates were looking at the visuals together, great work-based conversations were happening and the conversation was alive! Not the stifled polite chit chat you sometimes here at an event. A conference should encourage great work conversations and the meeting of minds. The art helped it to happen. 3- The process helps to sift through the mountains of words and capture the key stuff. Over 2 days there was aLOT of information. As the brain can only take in 7 +/2 bits of information at once, the visuals had a really important role. 4- The recognition and memory of information is almost instant with the use of visuals. When I went through the 2 days of drawing at the end of the conference, I could remember everything that I had drawn. adidas scarpe More importantly, when I was discussing it with the audience, they could remember all of the key points that I had drawn. Try doing that with bullet point filled PowerPoint presentations. 5- It has to look good. When you use great colour and images, it brings your picture and the story to life. Our mind and soul craves great design and colour. Research shows that using 6 or more colours hugely increases retention. adidas superstar For me, it also has to be something that clients would be happy to hang up in their office, not just scribing words in different colour pens. 6- Everyone likes it when you put in images that people know or recognise. All of the above was based on my observations on the day but there is LOADS of research and on the power of visuals for recognition and learning. As an artist, I have known the power of art in visual communication and telling messages. I am delighted...

Last Friday was a beautiful day in Sydney. Not just because of the weather, which was impressive, but because we held our fantastic Amazing Grace’s Charity Race for a group of 100 from all around Australia in the confines of Cockle Bay. A great venue for the Amazing Race as it’s a circular course, it’s a great vibe and it’s a fun place to be. We had 10 teams of people who started off the day in Nick’s Bar & Grill right on the waterfront. The teams were given a pack containing their first clue. Then it was on! They spent the next couple of hours exploring Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour, trying to find clues to reveal the location of Amazing Grace, a leading philanthropist who had recently disappeared. Along the way they bumped into some very colourful characters who had the teams roaring with laughter at the activities they were asked to do! Clowns, Magicians, Heroes from Ancient Greece, Street Artists. We like to keep our team building creative! The race finished back at Nick’s Bar & Grill, where teams were asked to create a sculpture out of objects they had collected during the race – these sculptures were superb – creative, funny and some very topical. We then played back some of their antics during the day on the big screen and announced the winner. A great way to finish the day and lead into a yummy dinner and drinks. See below for some of the stuff they got up...

We recently had great time producing our  teambuilding event Your Evening, Your Rules for 120 participants for a large Telecoms organisation in Melbourne.                           As with all VisualFunk events, we believe that if you do creative things, creative things (and great things) happen and this was exactly the case. It turns the usual conference evening on its head by putting participants at the heart of the action and they take charge of the evening and its success. If the team doesn’t make things happen, the evening doesn’t happen.                           Working with some brilliant creatives the evening saw everyone initially move in different directions to create a special part of the evening. These included: Working with an artist and florist to create art to theme the room and floristry for table decorations, along with sculpted napkins! Working with chefs to create a four course meal and then serving it to everyone Learning Salsa dancing to entertain the rest of the team Creating 130 signature cocktails to share with the team Working with a professional musician to perform three songs to entertain the rest of the team later that evening (and with great results).                           The night ended up with a filled dance floor to Nutbush City Limits being belted out by a team member on vocals (where had she hidden that talent?) along with support on the Electric Guitar and vocals by the VisualFunk team.                           This was a great event for VisualFunk as we were able to flex some creative muscles.  The client was a delight to work with as they had big ideas and we were able to work together to produce an evening that was innovative and a whole lot of fun.                           What the client said: “In the lead up to the event, the conversations and development of the evening was great. Communication and sharing of ideas was open, you were very accommodating to our changes and instilled a level of confidence in your ability that I knew would just come off on the night.  On the evening, your guys knew what to do, were well prepared and again you were very accommodating of last minute changes we needed to make. The evening… the feedback has been nothing short of fantastic and I think everyone had...
