“I decided to attend the Visual Skills Summer Fest Slovenia as I was already participating in a modular Visual Facilitation programme with Mireille and felt this would be good way to practice what I was learning. It was a very enjoyable, relaxing and creative day, collaborating with like-minded people and gaining new ideas, tools and techniques. I gained greater confidence in my skills, new approaches, new ways of thinking and more practical ideas for using this in our workshops and trainings.”

What you get out of this day …

  • Experimenting, practicing and learning with other visual practitioners / creatives increases your resourcefulness in your work.

  • The practices we do boost your visual & creative thinking skills.

“A day with Mireille will give you a new perspective on drawing with purpose, to make meaning, or to use on an application with a drawing. It’s not about art or making it pretty but about creating something of value, discovering broader meaning or deeper connections between
simple & every day objects.”

About your facilitator

The Visual Skills Fest is initiated and lead by Mireille van Bremen,
a Dutch visual catalyst who lives in Slovenia since 2006.

The first Visual Skills Summer Fests took place in Slovenia and The Netherlands in 2019.


Everything I do as a graphic recorder, visual mediator, facilitator, visual communication trainer and coach, stems from an intention to invigorate creativity and empathy in order to catalyse potential, prevent conflict, navigate change and stimulate inclusion.

After a career as a graphic designer, art director and design department leader of an advertising agency, I merged all my knowledge and experience
visual communication with my intensive training experience on Nonviolent Communication, an empathy based model by Marshall Rosenberg.

Over the past years I trained hundreds of trainers, facilitators, coaches, educators and leaders from all over the world in becoming resourceful in their communication and their approach to have the impact they envision.

The programs I design and offer live and in the Online Visual Skills Training Academy which I founded, help people to develop visual communication skills that lead to greater understanding, stimulate confidence, empathic leadership, connection, engagement, creativity and increase the impact of trainings, seminars, workshops, presentations, meetings or conferences.
