Art is a powerful way companies can unite employees across geographies

At NINE dot ARTS, we see art as a tool for making connections and uniting communities far and wide. The businesses we work with, in particular, find that art can connect their locations that might see geography as a cultural barrier. For example, a company’s culture in a Miami office might be very different from one in Seattle – but luckily for many companies, art can function as a unifier.

No matter the size or scope of a project, NINE dot ARTS holds in-depth consultations with each new client to understand the company’s personality and desired creative space. Our goal at the end of a session is to create a “mission statement” and template for the company’s art and the criteria we can use to emulate this. This effort is more than just repeating the same pieces in different locations, however, typically beginning with a base template with flexibility to make slight variations depending on the office location.
