How it Works: Process, Interaction, and Decision-Making
Generally, once instructed by a general facilitator, the participants are divided into groups, where they engage in discussion, elaboration, planning, and drawing tables. They can elaborate massages in theatrical scenes, and/or collages of images, scripts, and narrations. Typically, the work in the groups is not moderated, but free and spontaneous. Then the results are returned to the plenary and discussed again with the help of the facilitator, who can guide in-depth analysis or selections of options.
