Well, an experience wall is just plain… awesome!
This week I helped to create a HUGE (8’ high x 48’ long!) plexiglass experience wall at a conference in Las Vegas. It was a wall of inspiration co-created by a team of graphic recorders and the 700 conference attendees. Attendees approached us during breaks with their personal stories of inspiration, and we added them to the wall in real time. People loved it! They’d come back on their next break to see that their EXPERIENCES had come to life and were incorporated into the greater vision of the company. It was a terrific way to increase engagement, participation, and networking as people got into sharing stories not only with us, but with each other.
An experience wall can take on many shapes. Sometimes it is one, two or multiple large foam core boards placed on an easel or creating an illustrated pillar. Other times it is a large sheet of paper spread down a wall. No matter what shape it takes on, participants want to know “What’s happening?” and it invites them into the action.
