What we do

EmcArts works alongside people, organizations, and communities as they take on their most complex challenges.  

Through our rigorously designed and facilitated workshops, coaching, and intensive labs, we create the space and conditions to test innovative strategies and build cultures that embrace change.  

Our practice is deeply influenced by the artistic process, which we believe has a unique power to unlock entrenched beliefs and open up new ways of seeing.  

What we believe

Innovation is primarily a process, not a product, fueled by discipline, focus, and a strong will for change. It requires letting go of what is no longer useful and experimenting your way forward. This is difficult and vulnerable work. 

Artistic experiences help us learn to navigate the tension between thinking and feeling, both of which are required to respond to complex challenges. 

Highly effective teams bring together people with many points of view and engage that difference.

Lasting change occurs when you do real work in tandem with rigorous reflection, and support it with strategic financial investment.

Communities that learn together have more power to shape the future than any one person or organization working alone.
