Art + Business: Making to Lead
April 29, 2016 at 5:30 pm–7:30 pm
Join us for a panel, tour and art making at the headquarters of Life is Good in Fort Point to learn how an innovative company is integrating art and business. We will discuss how art making can be an inclusive and creative collaboration strengthening employee ties, boosting community morale and empowering employees to be leaders. Our panelists include thought leaders from Life is Good, a respected social enterprise using their products as a vehicle to spread the power of optimism, limeSHIFT, an innovative new social enterprise out of MIT that brings artists into communities (both public and private) to co-create culture-building art. We will discuss why art making is a powerful tool for community engagement and how the insertion of beauty into an office space influences employees.
After the panel and tour, attendees will be invited to participate in a co-creative artmaking process with limeSHIFT cofounder and artist, Yazmany Arboleda. Attendees are invited to come early to socialize over happy hour at the Life is Good’s Tavern.
Prior registration and ticket purchase is required for this event. Early Bird tickets are $10 (ends on April 12) and General Tickets are $15 (sales end May 1).
