Cultural Entrepreneurship (Online Workshop)
UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development
The workshop combines theoretical discourses with practical case studies from different countries around the world. Participants critically analyze entrepreneurial cases and examples by implementing appropriate theoretical models. As part of the learning process, we identify key issues and suggest strategic solutions for the development of start-up organizations, as well as from the perspective of cultural policy-making. These include:
- How can we, as cultural planners, managers and policy-makers, promote a proper environment in which cultural entrepreneurship can flourish?
- What are the ways to connect creative practices and innovative tools with new business and financial models, and secure appropriate financial and material infrastructures to support them?
- What strategies does a cultural entrepreneur need to elaborate in order to manage a start-up creative enterprise in a sustainable mode?
- What is the role of strategic alliances, networking, collaboration and partnership in the entrepreneurial practice in the cultural sector?
- Why and how could cultural entrepreneurs expand and manage their startup ventures abroad and what is the support system for international entrepreneurship in the arts?
