What if Business were Art Making?

At the UW Bothell Bootcamp Part 1 facilitated by Michele and Jim McCarthy, a powerful part of the process was the making of team art.  The supplies were all there and we were encouraged to “make art” throughout the weekend.  A wonderful stream of paintings flowed from our interactions.

Professor David Socha captured this collage of the paintings in his blog after the weekend.

UW Bothell Bootcamp Part 1 Team Art

What I missed during the weekend was that creating great teams who create great products included bringing the making of art into the workplace.

The process of art making fulfills the vision that Stan Davis created in his book The Art of Business.

What would business look like if art making were an integral part of work?
