About

“Art is not supposed to repeat what you know. It is supposed to ask questions”

– KUTLUG ATAMAN

WE INSPIRE COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS TO THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THE SOURCES OF INNOVATION. Through seminars, blogging, community events, workshops, and presentations, TheArtian exposes, promotes, and educates about the value of art in Business.

It fosters collaboration between creative fields and the business world. Our service is unique in that it is focused squarely on creativity and art in the business context, and is based on studies of successful business leaders.


OUR PHILOSOPHY

As innovation and creativity training company that rooted in the art world we explore the influence of art and design on the worlds of business, innovation, entrepreneurship and technology. Most importantly: we combine them. As such, creativity is the core of our philosophy. Working with NGOs, Business organizations or governmental offices, we build together methods to transform their businesses by inspiring our participants. Along the way, our clients develop skills helping them to be more innovative and creative.

To maintain competitiveness, innovation has become a critical pillar for organizations, countries and societies. – Our future depends on innovation.  In order to develop a sustainable innovation environment we identified its key driver: creativity. Creativity is the heart of developing new products, services and processes. It is the ability to challenge the status quo and to find newer and fresher ways to create and take action.


The way we work

Training for creativity is the key, however, it is not enough. We believe that a change in paradigm is required; we encourage leaders to empower creativity, as “Fusionist” –the ones who create and foster an environment that “fuses” art, engineering, technology, and science. Working across disciplines, and blending together their best aspects.

We use methods and practices from the art world and combine them with knowledge from the business world.

We highlight similarities between entrepreneurship and artistic practices so that participants can reflect on their experiences and find the way to adjust it to their way of living, thinking and working.

We use a “can-do” approach drawn from the world of entrepreneurship to encourage participants to take actions and learning by doing. We use resourcefulness, frugality and agility to address business challenges and deal with uncertainties and ambiguities that are an integral part of the innovation process.
