Social Artistry

Social Artistry™ is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of social complexity. It seeks to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to social challenges in the world.

Drawing upon its successes in training leaders in many countries and organizations throughout the world, Social Artistry™ brings state of the art discoveries in human capacity building to social transformation. Thus, it seeks to build a planetary society based on the principles of democracy, sustainable development, human-based needs and values, universal human rights, environmental protection, social justice, equality and the sovereignty and dignity of all peoples worldwide.

Social Artists are leaders in many fields who bring the same order of passion and skill that an artist brings to his or her art form to the canvas of our social reality. It is within the depth work of Social Artistry™ that we can access the inner capacities to align ourselves with the earth’s higher purpose. Ultimately, it is about all of us together co-creating the human and social changes needed to make a better world. The core of this program is the annual summer institute.

quotesThe Social Artistry™ program taught me profound ways of taking these learnings and individual capacities and putting them to real use in the world. I find that my ‘offer’ to the world has clarified and grown, which has had a wonderful impact upon my individual clients and the groups I lead. Social Artistry™ training is a fantastic boot camp for anyone wanting to be an active participant in the Possible Society!”
–Susan Belchamber, Lifespan Development, Neurotherapist, Ontological Coach, Group Facilitator

“The Social Artistry™ training provided me with a profoundly rich environment in which to deepen connections between my personal stories and the stories of a more collective history. With personal vision for community transformation, I discover ways to weave the threads with others into a journey for healing and transformation.”
