What to expect?

We guide you through the whole process: from idea to finished infographic.

  • During the physical workshop on 9 November, you learn how to define your key message, you start to sketch your own infographic in order to convey this message, and we teach you how to work with different online tools. We will make sure that the backbone of your infographic is in place, so that you are able to finish it independently at home.

  • But don't worry, you do need to finish your infographic without any further assistance or guidance! You may find plenty of inspiration and tools on our online learning platform.

  • Furthermore, we organize a feedback session on 25 November, in which you receive individual feedback on your work-in-progress.

  • And for the cherry on top: after finishing your perfect infographic, you may be able to publish it through one of our media partners.
