Question 3

What’s the story? What is your evidence?


  • The facilitator invites the participants to imagine what story the artwork is suggesting.
  • The facilitator asks for the visual evidence that supports this narrative.
  • The facilitator continues to reflect the participants’ contributions.
  • The facilitator repeatedly invites participants to offer their individual points of view with supporting evidence.


  • With encouragement from the facilitator, different points of view will emerge.
  • Multiple interpretations are usually entertained with genuine interest, even curiosity.


The invitation to suggest multiple interpretations parallels the medical practice of differential diagnosis.
