BE PART OF THE ART

Everyone knows it is important to step back and look at the ‘big picture’ every now and then, particularly when looking at the organisation and how it’s people operate and communicate internally. With ‘Be Part Of The Art’ the importance of team work, co-operation and communication is reinforced through the process of painting an artistic masterpiece of truly epic proportions.
At the start of the exercise the delegates are divided into small teams responsible for painting one or several individual canvases – each small part of the bigger picture artwork. Armed with brushes, paint, very little information and, importantly, no idea what the image will be, the teams have to work with each other to ensure lines meet and colours match.

Delegates soon realise that to be successful, they have to co-operate with the other teams rather than compete. In short, they have to take a ‘big picture’ view to ensure that each canvas fits perfectly and the final result is a success. The artwork image can be inspired by a company’s brand, conference theme, products, values, goals or, alternatively, it can be a large scale reproduction of a famous work of art.

Once complete, the canvases from all the teams are collected, framed together and covered. The highlight of Be Part Of The Art is the final reveal where, following a debrief, the masterpiece is unveiled to the delegates for the first time with inevitable loud cheers and thundering applause. The completed masterpiece can be displayed back in the office as a lasting reminder of the importance of teamwork.
