To Register: You Want to Think Outside the Box. We Already Do. How the Arts Can Help Transform Your Business and Employees

Program Summary  


We hear over and over again that employees are not ready for the workplace: they are poor communicators, they are too careful or not careful enough, they don’t know how to collaborate or work independently and more. The arts are a proven way to begin to address these and other issues. Come and learn about options for how to engage your employees to better your bottom line.

Participating in arts activities at work builds professional skills, such as:

·         Analytical thinking

·         Problem solving

·         Independent and collaborative thinking

·         Sociability

·         Fuller intellectual capacity

Finding common ground through art gives your employees the opportunity to connect with colleagues and share ideas. It also helps create a lively, positive work environment for employees, makes them feel good about coming to work and sustains them throughout the day.


Learning Objectives


This will cover the following topics:


1.       Benefits of having original art in your workspace

2.       Benefits of bringing artists into your workspace

3.       Benefits of having employees make art with artists

4.       Benefits of taking employees on a magical mystery art tour throughout town
