If you are not interested in arts, culture & creativity by taste at least you have to be interested in it by opportunism or by strategy.

Corporate leaders must navigate a landscape with technology that is changing at light speed, with a society that is on a turning point and with a disruptive economy that is challenging everybody. Skilled talent is hard to recruit and retain and the workforce is becoming more diverse. Due to social media it’s getting harder to control brand image. Firms are looking for new ways to stimulate creative and innovative thinking.
The art and cultural world can help corporate leaders to cope with these problems.
Artist have the tendency to think less conventional and have a sensorium for what is happening in the society. They are used to question everything and to anticipate. While in business we go from point "a" to point "b", artist re-invent point "b".
Evidence shows that investment in artification provides advantages for both the business itself and the community in which the company and its employees live and work.
More and more companies use art and culture to create authenticity, make new connections with customers or employees, boost creativity and innovation, and harness the prestige of art to improve their brand.
We also see that companies initiate transformation processes by entering into partnerships with cultural actors. Transformation on a personal and interpersonal level, but also on a strategic level. In some cases, the ultimate goal for the company was to become a game changer.
Some artists work at the interface between art and technology. Art becomes a research domain to question the possibilities and impact of technology on people and society
Collaboration between organizations and the art world can evolve from simple synergies to intense hybridizations.
Thanks to our experience and large network with artists, cultural institutions and creatives, we can help you to do the right “thing” with art and culture.
