Can Art Change our Water Consciousness?

Join EMC and Linda Gass at our next Grass Roots Innovation Program on March 26th from 5:30-7:30 at EMC’s Santa Clara Offices.

Linda Gass is an environmental artist whose work is informed by the wilderness, maps, aerial photography and her activist passions. Her current work explores land use and water issues by portraying aerial views of the human marks on our landscape. Linda’s presentation will take you on a photographic journey to the places that inspire her work, from the wilderness areas of California to some of the significant water interventions in the American West. Linda will show a wide range of her work: stitched paintings on silk, land art made with textiles, photography, new works in glass and a glimpse into at an exhibit she curated about the history and future of water in the Santa Clara Valley. She will also show images of her artistic process: from initial concept sketches to the finished artwork. You will leave with a new appreciation and awareness for water resources and how art can play an important role in educating the public.

Navi Radjou, an innovation and leadership strategist based in Silicon Valley is the co-author of the bestselling book, “Jugaad Innovation: Think Frugal, Be Flexible, Generate Breakthrough Growth”.  His book was touted by the Economist as “the most comprehensive book yet to appear on the subject”.  Let’s hear from Navi at EMC’s GRIP event.

“Innovation is a major directive at corporations worldwide. But how do you drive innovation and growth as the global business landscape becomes increasingly unpredictable and diverse? The answer: jugaad. Jugaad is a Hindi word meaning an improvised solution born from ingenuity and cleverness (think of it as the “MacGyver” spirit). Jugaad is the secret formula of successful grassroots entrepreneurs in emerging markets such as India, Africa, China, and Brazil who are able to innovate faster, better, and cheaper in the midst of high complexity. For the first time in the U.S., you will learn how to apply the frugal and flexible principles of jugaad in your own organization to accelerate growth and outperform competition.
