Graphic Recording Announcement!

Graphic Recording by Sam Hester

In keeping with our Underhill 2022 theme of ‘Rethinking History’ we are also thinking about how we record and share our own history. To this end, we are thrilled to be joined by graphic recorder Sam Hester for our Closing Keynote.

A leader in the emerging field of graphic recording, Sam Hester creates visual stories that transform dry meeting minutes into eye-catching tools for engagement. Sam’s work draws upon deep listening skills, a unique graphic style, a passion for community-building… and a lot of markers. A longtime advocate for comics as a medium for serious storytelling, Sam is a contributor to comics journalism, comics in academia, and the Graphic Medicine movement. Sam writes and draws comics about real-life local stories in her hometown, Calgary, in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
