#2 Breakout Sessions
Innovation through Art: Leveraging Disruption for a Sustainable Ecosystem

To meet the demands of the global agenda, businesses and societies need to create disruptivesolutions. However, many business people continue to rely on empirical ideation and existing datasets in the innovation processes. The arts have the power to change this, to move us beyond logic, tocome up with unique questions and designs to generate solutions. In the first half of this session,panelists will focus on the unique characteristics of art and how to leverage them for disruptiveinnovation. However, many artists exist outside of the lucrative, insider circle of galleries, curators, andcritics. To harness the full potential of art, a sustainable, inclusive ecosystem is indispensable. In thesecond half of this session, panelists will tackle this conundrum and suggest concrete actions togenerate innovation in a healthy, forward-thinking, and global art ecosystem.
