Who is the Collaboration Artist?
One who understands the art and science of bringing people together to solve problems. One who uses the power of idea flow and solves problems.
They are the… Diplomats, Facilitators, Negotiators, Conveners, Meeting and Event Organizers, Teachers, Politicians, Legislators, Community Organizers, Orchestra Conductors, Project Managers and More.
Why Celebrate them?
By elevating the Collaboration Artist into one that is recognized and appreciated, his or her presence in a room will command a new respect and authority that will enable us to better solve problems and ignite change.
When this happens, entire industries will benefit and the importance of smart collaboration of any size and shape will be showcased. From an internal working group to a global conference, from a festival to a celebration…idea flow leads to exploration… which leads to problem solving and progress.
The Movement Begins Soon
On September 27, 2016 (on what we hope will be a beautiful morning), the Roof Terrance at The Kennedy Center will host the first Collaboration Artist recognition program. We want to spark a movement to inspire future generations and truly change the world. We will honor and learn from some of the greatest collaborators of our generation.
