What's Possible Now
The power of working visually isn't beauty...it's meaning. The challenges we face today are too big for any one person or organization. We must find new ways to help groups create collective meaning. —Julie Swanson

What's Possible Now
What’s Possible Now (WPN) works with organizations who want to “learn into” how to use story and visuals intentionally and strategically for growth, innovation and healing. They help clients discover: What are the stories we need to tell to create the future we most want? How do we create together better? How do we move past what’s been holding us back? What does success like? WPN uses graphic facilitation, story development and guided learning journeys to: watch how organizations think and work together, look below the surface at what isn’t being said, change the lens on pain points, and nurture curiosity to encourage creativity. Their clients are found in the not-for-profit and for-profit spaces, including associations, schools and universities, corporations, hospitals, foundations, faith communities, public health departments and funding organizations. These groups want to be edgeworkers, wayfinders and torchbearers to bring about positive social change in their communities.
