Adversity Is An Opportunity For Creativity

When the world came to a staggering halt brought on from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, for some, limitation and adversity was a breeding ground for creativity and new opportunities.

Whether for escapism, humour or merely a way to pass the time, we’ve seen; artists, novelists, comedians and screenwriters adapt their talents and emerge with new, inspiring work that brings joy and positivity to many in the process. From Randy Newman’s wry ‘stay Away’ track about social distancing and Jarvis Cocker’s domestic disco, to Noel Fielding’s art club; innovation has been tested in ways we never anticipated.

For the team at Blue Hat Teambuilding, with creativity at the core of their mission to enhance team dynamics, they would also not be compromised by limitations, such as social distancing. Rather, they would create alternative means to connect people to each other, to keep communication flowing and to maintain morale for the vast swathes of newly rendered remote workers.

‘The Corona Canvas’ was born.

With the aim to create a global community project that everyone can get involved in, The Corona Canvas uses the simple activity of colouring, to give everyone an opportunity to participate and express themselves together.

Not only does this project have a goal to produce the largest piece of artwork in the history of mankind, that one day they hope will be projected in major art galleries around the world and looked upon by our future generations, inspiring them to feel the power of community. Essentially, this project can also help the global community right now. The Corona Canvas has entered itself in a race to raise £1 million for all those affected by the coronavirus globally and so each and every contributor will be making an impact in more ways than one.

With one million canvases just released to the public all over the world, artists, influencers and corporations alike are all set to collaborate to build this global masterpiece.

Join the great initiative to race to raise £1m and build the largest piece of artwork - Buy your canvas here.

Every canvas features a cleverly designed interconnecting border so each canvas owner can match their colours to the surrounding canvases on the online gallery, creating an opportunity for social interaction. Each completed canvas pieces together like a patchwork quilt to create one magnificent, seamless work of art; mixing everyone's different artistic styles, colour choices and creativity. It will grow and emerge to a memorable and awe-inspiring scale.
