Nurturing the Art of Change

Art and power have always been begrudging bedfellows and yet the power of art – that sight, sound, smell, taste, rhythm or feeling – engages emotion in such a way as to provide communication, understanding and participation at loftier levels than analytical visions and approaches. These feelings may in turn spur thinking, engagement and even action.

Art traverses language, culture, borders and even centuries. The invitation to enter the artist’s mind and uncover the intimate process of artistic creativity is more appealing today than it has ever been. Once here, how can we equip ourselves to address our vast social, environmental and economic crises and injustices? Our e-Xperience will be a space to engage with academics, practitioners, artists and each other to cultivate the answers:

  • How is art impacting the practices of leadership and change agency?
  • Where is it being used for organisational, social or territorial change?
  • How can I respond to complex change through art?
  • How can I bring art into my daily practice?
  • What are the necessary conditions for the artistic process to take place?
  • How can I trigger the creative process to think differently?

The high-pitched calls to action that now beckon require us to kickstart our collective imaginations and creativity – building a capacity to conceive of what might be in ourselves, our teams, organisations, communities and in society at large. In the face of the chaos that looms – having tried and tested the linear and the rational – let us now come together to nurture the art of change, and see what from it grows.

We are very fortunate to have academics, practitioners and artists, all passionate about the interconnectedness between art, management and change, joining us to facilitate diverse and interactive online sessions.

This integrated e-Xperience will be delivered over 9 consecutive interactive sessions starting on Monday the 14th September and concluding on Monday the 28th September 2020. Sessions will run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for 60 or 90 minutes. Please check the full details below.

Here you will find the full programme book including the speakers biographies, the sessions synopses, and the suggested readings.

Re-imagining Work

From rapid adoption of automation and AI technologies to demographic shifts and different consumer pulls, the world is changing at a rapid pace and with it the workplace, the workforce and the nature of work itself. We speak of the 4th industrial revolution or the 3rd cognitive revolution; a new era that has fundamentally altered the way we live, work and relate to one another. Yet, as billions of people connect around the world, social inequality is on the rise with the widening gap between rich and poor. Today, we face a future of unlimited possibilities and gruelling uncertainties. New modes of employment are on the rise, with gigsharing, or platform economies; Progressive models of organising are gaining in popularity with the move from hierarchy to wirearchy and a marked emphasis on horizontalismself-management and agility. What’s more, the traditional boundaries between home and office, night and day, work and leisure are blurring…

What does the future hold?

In this dynamic landscape, this conference will be the space to engage around the various facets of work through a critical and reflective lens. Together, we will re-imagine the future of work, how it will be organised, and our very own current approaches.

We will tackle the following questions:

  • How will work be organised in the future and how will that shape our organisations?
  • What is the meaning of work, and can we imagine it beyond success, recognition and personal achievement?
  • How can people be better equipped for that future? What are their most relevant assets and skills and how can we grow them?
  • How will these futures affect the practice of leadership and change agency?
  • What can we do today to re-imagine and reshape our organisations, our societies and our own work?

he Speakers

We are very fortunate to have academics, researchers and practitioners passionate about reshaping work, organisations and our societies, joining us to facilitate diverse and interactive sessions.

Exploring Innovation Spaces

Labs, Incubators, Accelerators, Camps, Hubs, Studios, Hackathons, Garages—these are only a few of the many shapes and forms of the new spaces that have sprung up in recent years to drive change and innovation. Some spaces foster entrepreneurship and the exploration of new business opportunities, while others wrestle with complex social challenges. All of these spaces drive impact and change.

Regardless of their form, these spaces are growing, attracting attention worldwide, and setting a new “must have” in today’s fast-paced, hyperconnected, and complex environment.

In this world of pivots, iterations, and sprints, where everyone seeks their inner Silicon Valley, this conference will offer the opportunity to stop for a moment, reflect and explore the hype.

We are very fortunate to have academics, researchers and practitioners passionate about innovation and innovation spaces joining us as speakers. They will facilitate diverse interactive sessions and share their know-how, giving us a taste of their experiences, and engaging us in a reflective, and dare we say ‘innovative’ space.

So, whether you are part of or are going to be a part of such spaces, or whether you are a practitioner looking for ways to innovate, this conference is for you.

We will draw on the latest research on innovation spaces and benefit from the broad experience in the room to answer questions around:

  • How did this phenomenon come to be and what can we learn from its history?
  • Why do these spaces continue to be the celebrated exceptions in our organizations, and not simply “the way” that work gets done?
  • What are their different types and what are the frameworks, techniques, tools that animate them?
  • What is the impact of ‘innovation spaces’ on the system?
  • What role for the ‘space curator’ or change agent?
  • What is the impact on leadership and what is the role of the ‘leader’?
  • How can I grow the ‘innovation space’ in my practice?
  • Can tCL be an ‘innovation space’? How?

At the end of Day 1, we will leave the HEC Alumni venue at 17:30 to cross town to STATION F. There, we will be invited to discover the innovation space and ecosystem, meet the people behind the HEC Incubator, and engage around the unique stories of startups.

Following our visit, we will enter the latest concept of the Big Mamma restaurants group, a unique food market: La Felicità, the product of another HEC startup where we will meet 5 entrepreneurs developing their startups within STATION F. We will also join our growing community of CCC, tCL and HEC friends in a fun, engaging and mouth-watering dining experience.

One-way transportation from HEC Alumni, the visit to STATION F as well as the Networking Dinner are all included in the conference fee for registered participants.
Guests of registered participants are welcome to join the networking dinner at La Felicita starting 19:00. There are no formalities involved in their participation; they will be able to manage their own food and drinks directly with the restaurant.
