Pick a Picture provides a collection of images that you can do an activity with. The activity involves a prompt, for example, select images that connect with how you feel. Everyone spends time looking through the pictures selecting images based on the prompt, and then you share them with each other.
Partake of a visual feast. Look through pictures to find ones that speak to you. What are you drawn to? What gets evoked in you?
Spending time with the images and sharing about them with others is a time for connecting with yourself and connecting with others. The images and what we have to say about them provide windows into our worlds. Maybe we get to hear about how recent things are setting the stage for someone, or how important something from further back was, or how someone is seeing things connect, etc. The images, with their "a picture is worth a thousand words" quality, make it easy to quickly go somewhere with someone and get to something substantial. They also lend themselves to going deeper.
The Pick a Picture digital image collection can be interacted with using an online whiteboard app called Miro, which can be used in a web browser on a computer (note that at this point you can't use a mobile device [phone, iPad/tablet] to participate in a Pick a Picture session).
Using Miro and some way of talking to each other, Pick a Picture sessions can be held virtually as well as in-person.
