with Sanna Lamb
Social Artistry is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of complexity. It is designed to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to co-create necessary change. Social Artists are leaders in ever field who bring the same order of passion and skill that an artist brings to her art form to the canvas of challenges at hand. The Social Artist’s medium is the human community. It is through their work that we access inner capacities, rise to challenges, discover innovative solutions, new models for thriving in transition.
Most leaders have been educated for a different time. Few are trained to deal with so total a game change. Too many problems stem from leadership that is ill prepared to deal with complexity. This is not just a matter of inadequate training but a lack of resourcefulness due to leadership blindness: leaders living in a field of awareness that limits their abilities to resolve issues. Around the world institutions are failing to meet their purpose. Social Artists see how the old rules are not working. They are skilled players at the key moments and places where systemic change can occur.
As a Social Artist, I collaborate with artists, scientists, psychologists, entertainers, entrepreneurs and educators to exchange perspectives, find solutions and hopefully share some irreverence and humor. I do not simply produce events or deliver impressions, the aim is to change the way we think and interact and push the boundaries for what is possible.
There is tremendous strength and creative glue at the intersection of divergent disciplines, industries, technologies, communities, especially during times of change. Mixing things up encourages resilience and provides nourishment for individual/collective breakthroughs. Cracking the codes of a puzzling situation and seeing the light come on in people’s eyes is what I live for. Pure joy. The best feeling ever!
LET’S WORK TOGETHER
We can work together in service, celebration and mischief. I’ve owned an event coordination and media production business (7yrs.), co-owned an adult education seminar center (14 yrs.) and continue to create one-of-a-kind transformative experiences and events with other community driven, progressive partners. Let’s partner to improve your existing events or create a completely new experience or series of events together in one city or across the world.
