As a working artist and graduate of the local arts college, art impacts my life on a daily basis. I work as the Arts and Innovation coordinator for a payments solution company, and I first hand have seen how integrating art into a corporate structure can positively impact employee life and happiness in work life. By introducing creative sparks into daily life, more innovative solutions are made, a necessary aspect to the present day culture. The arts need to be nurtured in our children and our culture in order to continue progressing into a sustainable future.
