Ready to Create a Plan?

Invest in long-term sustainability. Artsightful provides consulting services that build the capacity of organizations, and the people who run them, to reach your fullest potential.The deliverables are a clearly articulated action plan that can be implemented and sustained. Design Thinking practices are used to foster inspirational and accomplishable solutions.

As a facilitator of strategic planning for arts and culture organizations, my focus on space is about the people in it. I often work with teams that are in the process of articulating their shared vision. This process requires that I create a safe space where people can candidly share aspirations and perceived limitations in reaching the vision. We always begin with a grounding practice focused on breathing and arriving in the space. Then we discuss rules of engagement to ensure every voice is heard and all participants are respected.

My role is to “hold” the space by guiding participants through their explorationThis is the solid foundation for trust that carries participants through their long-term collaboration, beyond my consultancy.
