There’s no better way to build team spirit than with a can of spray paint and a blank canvas. Native 312 Events gives groups a chance to foster community and creativity while learning about one of Chicago’s most widely seen forms of art: graffiti.
Javier Dominguez and Adam Dittman founded Native 312 Events nearly two years ago after working together on events for more than eight years. They now provide Urban Art Workshops to a variety of clientele, including collegiate groups and corporate teams.
“Every time we do our Urban Art Workshop, it never fails to amaze me how people of different artistic skill sets work together to create something awesome,” Dominguez says. “It’s almost like people draw inspiration from one another and build on top of it, which is essentially how you want your team to work together to tackle problems in the workspace.”
Dominguez says their Urban Art Workshop encourages teams to work together in an organic manner while flexing their creative muscles. Plus, he jokes, it doesn’t hurt that they’re able to work in some bar packages.
“Our goal is to provide entertaining and immersive ways to experience Chicago and highlight some of its culture and creative circles that may be new to locals and visitors alike,” Dominguez says. “We work with some of the most highly regarded artists in Chicago."
