Apart from working directly with organizations and individuals, Artists Are Among Us also serves as a network to connect those who share the mindset that creativity should become the primary pursuit of our species, while machines take over unskilled and redundant tasks.
“After all, all business is by and for humans, it’s entirely about creating a better experience for humanity. So we need to allow for more humanity in the way we do everything. And there are plenty of tools available within the artistic practice to allow us to tap into our full human potential.”
Moulsari says she never really expected to go through the program at THNK and emerge as an artist with a social conscience. “Sure, I wanted to learn how to make more impact with my work, but when I learned the value of design thinking tools for businesses and social enterprises alike, I realized that I could make a much bigger difference by sharing my own creative tools and techniques. I understood how much more there was to gain, for all, if businesses and social enterprises had the opportunity to actually apply a creative mindset. For us to live more sustainably and successfully, we need a new measure of our success instead of constant growth, fame, and fortune.”
Currently, Moulsari and Artists Are Among Us are looking for clients, partners and collaborators who are ready to create truly diverse, innovative and artistic ways of working and living. They aren’t just creating a new paradigm for work and lifestyle, they are creating a movement to learn how to adopt an artistic mindset in work and life. “After all,” says Moulsari, “Our humanity is our greatest asset in a future that is dominated by machines.”
