NAMP Ignite Talks: Drawing Lines

Video

“Drawing Lines” in Austin, Texas was a community art project inspired by historical political changes happening within the city due to electoral redistricting. For this project, an artist or team of artists worked with each council district to co-create an art piece with residents; all of the projects were then brought together as part of a pop-up gallery along Congress Avenue, a major thoroughfare in the city. “Drawing Lines” used the arts to open conversations about the role art plays in exploring notions of place and in bringing together communities of people.

How Googlers Avoid Burnout (And Secretly Boost Creativity)

Sunday, June 11, 2017

For many of us it's hard to detach ourselves from work. We've got so much going on that it's difficult to truly enjoy the weekends and our time off because our minds are constantly running with things to do. Chade-Meng Tan noticed this within himself and among his fellow Googlers and, in an effort to fix the issue, created a 7-week mindfulness mediatation course for Google employees called Search Inside Yourself. This course helped his coworkers learn how to separate work from their personal lives, and Google saw it as such a necessity that they asked him to teach full time for their Personal Growth department. Being intentional about resting is so crucial—not just for the obvious personal reasons, but to help boost your creativity and promote success for your business. So relax! Stop what you're doing and go for a quick run/walk, even take a nap, or check out this article to see some other helpful relaxation methods. Our best ideas come when we're least expecting them, so do yourself (and your business) a favor and rest.
