On Dec 2nd, online lecture ‘Improving communication through the Arts’ was conducted by Yoko Hayashi. CU SOA ‘91, Headif NPO Arts Alive.
The lecture included demonstration of Conversational Art Appreciation Program called Artrip. This methodology was originally created by MOMA, and Ms. Hayashi was certified there.
4 guests participated in the ARTRIP program and the rest of audience watched the process. We viewed 2 paintings and participants were enjoyed learning different perspectives of others, and stimulating the part of brain we usually do not use.
Ms. Hayashi explained at the end how such Art Appreciation Program can help improve the communication in business setting as well. Due to COVID 19 and VUCA world, companies need to change faster in order to take risk and survive in this world where we are unsure of future. We can improve our ability to observe, feel and express ourselves better through the Arts Appreciation Program and that can improve the capability of many companies to innovate.
