Inspiration is where the dialogue between arts and business often begins. A gradually increasing number of corporations have begun to understand how essential inspiration is to creative development and to recognise that the arts are uniquely placed to help them to tap into it. After all, the key currency of the arts is inspiration, inspiration of thought, emotion and action.
The arts sector has other, equally important, lessons to share with business. As companies become increasingly reliant on their people to give them a competitive edge, they need them to be increasingly committed, motivated and resourceful. These attributes are all becoming more and more difficult to foster in the present job climate. However, they are attributes that the arts sector enjoys in abundance and consequently they provide another area of expertise that they can share with the corporate world.
Through our program Creative Connections, we engage with corporations to work with diverse audiences using the Arts. One of our key focus areas is to build lifelong partnerships with compassionate individuals by introducing corporate citizens to the goals of a socially inclusive society.
