This course gives an introduction to the entrepreneurial dimension of cultural and creative industries. The two-weeks course will focus on the characteristics of cultural and creative entrepreneurs. You study theories and practices that demonstrate the value of entrepreneurial behaviour for the arts. The life of arts organisations often depends on the risk-taking nature of entrepreneurship. The principles of both entrepreneurship and business modelling will be treated. We will look at creative business modelling and development and the size and structure of cultural and creative enterprises. You will create a cultural and creative business plan.
