Imagination is like the fertile ground which is hardly watered yet bears the seeds when accidentally nurtured for the fruits of connection

Join us to explore how imagination can be a bridge to authentic connection through the medium of Arts. How can organization design transition from a standardized  to a ‘playful and spontaneous’ approach inducing flexibility and a greater sense of inclusion?


The language of Imagination is universal and does not discriminate, judge and challenge. It is a safe space to express, explore and experience authenticity and genuine connections.

Through this session, we wish to explore ‘Art’ as a medium:

  • to realize that imagination is naturally embedded in humans
  • to connect with the idea of ‘play’ and ‘spontaneity’ crucial to unleashing the creative potential and building connections
  • to design organizations that can hold the collective Imagination of people to be able to connect, dream and collaborate for a better future in the physical as well as the virtual world
  • to transition from a standardized design and process world to a more flexible, fluid, possibility oriented, inclusive and humane world
