Cultural Diversity Training Through Native Art

Cultural Diversity Training

In this episode of Clint Cora Motivational WebTV, yours truly as a diversity Canadian motivational speaker, talks about how one can increase exposure to cultural diversity training through art. This is one of the ways that I had originally been turned onto the world of diversity and made me want to explore other cultures around me.

I got interested in some beautiful artwork of certain cultures and in turn, became interested in the cultures behind the art. This is why art is an excellent route to explore diversity.

Becoming well versed in diversity skills which help you in becoming effective with people from all sorts of cultures and diversity groups is now considered an important component in achieving success in today's diverse environment. Art and food (as shown in a previous Motivational WebTV episode about Chinese food) are both effective and fun ways to increase diversity awareness.

Art Cultural Diversity Training On Video

In this new Motivational WebTV episode, I also take you on a tour of some of the art in my personal collection at home which includes pieces from several different cultures. Here is this unique cultural diversity training video below.

You will notice that I have quite a lot of Native Aboriginal and Inuit art in my collection. I'm a huge fan of these genres of art. If you have never seen much of these types of cultural art before but are intrigued by their styles, you can be more exposed to them by visiting either a separate Native art Facebook page I set up or a Native art blog I also run. I even offer two different ebooks on native art for free on those sites.

I hope you enjoy this episode and maybe it might spark an interest in ethnic art in you as well. Feel free to comment on this video as well as any of the artwork shown here. Just comment below or at the Motivation Facebook page where I hope you will hit the Like button.

If you like what you see and hear on this video about cultural diversity training through art, please share it with others via Facebook, Twitter or other means.

Native Art Of Dogs Would Be Nice

I don't usually see any native art of dogs anywhere for some reason. I wish some artists would do native art versions of my lhasa apso dogs. Wouldn't that be something?

My friend was also talking about some stray dogs up in Sioux Lookout where she has a contract. Surely they can draw them. I went there years ago when I had a pharmaceutical sales job covering the medical office up there.

Of course, I'm long retired from that field since I now work as a Canadian motivational speaker.
