The Big Picture
The Big Picture showcases the importance of teamwork, co-operation, and communication through the process of painting an artistic masterpiece of truly epic proportions. The end product serves as a tangible representation of the team’s collective efforts and reinforces the power of collaboration, communication, and working towards a common goal.
The exercise begins with delegates split into small teams, ready to create their own assigned pieces of The Big Picture. Armed with brushes and paint, each team must work together to ensure that lines meet and colours match – with no idea what the final image will be. Rather than competing with each other, delegates soon realize that co-operation
is key among teams to ensure that each canvas fits together perfectly
and The Big Picture artwork is a success.
When time is up and brushes are placed down, the group is instructed to take a quick 15-minute break and leave the room. The completed canvases are now collected, assembled together in a frame, and covered until the final reveal. As delegates re-enter the room the anticipation rises. A countdown leads the reveal and the sheet drops on the masterpiece to a loud and thundering applause. Participants and teams come together as one to behold the results of their hard work and finally see The Big Picture!
