ok, youre thi king- sounds fun but how will i sell this to my boss? If your boss cant get behind this, your culture will probably suffer anyway. We recommend getting stealthy (ahem...creative) and finding a way to incorporate it into something that already exists like a staff retreat, brainstorming sessions, employee resource group or as a part of your innovation team meetings.
ok, and how will it work?

ok, what exactly does this look like? will i get paint on my clothes?
Engagements are typically two hours and our vetted artists have all had experience speaking to corporate audiences to build skills - based in their artistic discipline. Artists range from comedians to burlesque dancers and you'd be surprised at what they know about creative confidence, risk taking, detail orientation, emotional intelligence, and other skills that help employees whether they are in the board room or on the dance floor.
Oh, yeah, and some engagements might require paint but ABC Ny will take care of all the material costs (like aprons and paint!) as well as make sure the team is aware of how to be fully prepared and present during the experience.
What if the artists pitch lands flat for my team - I'm worried that since we havent done this before, they might not get it.
Our vetted artists are excited about and comfortable engaging with diverse audiences. Most have spent hundreds of hours on stage or working with teams. You can also check out this video that gives an example of how it might go.(insert link)
