In this period of COVID-19 we’ve seen the power of arts, humanities, and culture in bringing communities together to fight this global crisis. On the one hand the pandemic has profoundly impacted corporations, bringing in habits and practices, shaking socioeconomic and political systems to their roots. Meanwhile, amidst this turmoil, the arts have continued to be a source of stability and unity, providing us with resilience while prompting us to evaluate how society may flourish once again to lead individuals and corporations towards growth, innovation and ideas for the future.
From the Mori Art Museum in Japan to Google Arts and Culture, and UBS’ global sponsorship for Art Basel, many major organizations have a long record of collecting and developing programs that inspire and motivate artists and the general community alike. Business collaboration with the arts foster creativity and strengthens different modes of communication. As part of Asia Society’s mission to use arts and culture to bridge ties in business, entrepreneurship, policy, and leadership between Asia and the world, we will be hosting a panel discussion on the power of using art as a platform for innovation and growth in business and corporations, or vice versa. For this second art symposium, we will be discussing how important art and business collaboration can be to elevate corporate missions by attracting new talents and inspiring creativity.
This symposium will be online.
