Why bring an artist/coach into your work-space?
- Bringing an artist into your organisational space can have a profound effect on the environment. The presence of artistic creativity transforms the ordinariness of work. It raises questions and curiosity and can highlight the things people have lost of sight of or have taken for granted.
- When artists begin to express themselves, the workplace is refreshed. New ways of seeing the space, the vision, the mission, and your day to day work become part of a business culture.
“Crafting Connection’s Visual Facilitation and Visual Harvesting work opens doors of awareness and understanding. It inspires clarity and effective action. Your ability to perceive on multiple layers is speeded up and illuminated. You are able to see the Big Picture and create anew.
Throughout our four days, the proceedings were captured in “visual minutes” by Vanessa Jane Smith (Spain) and Amber Holmblad (Denmark). They created four murals approximately ten feet long capturing our discussions and experiences in pictures and words. It was so amazing to watch the summit unfold in this visual way. If you are leading a conference, I highly recommend including this dimension to the experience for your participants. It added immeasurably to the richness of our summit.”Alan Seale
