Entrepreneurial Incubator

Spring 2020

Taught By: Diane Ragsdale

Section: A

CRN: 3930

Credits: 2

This experience gives students the opportunity to draw on the knowledge they have gained in the MA AME and to demonstrate their skills as socially engaged, independent creative producers. Serving as a capstone for the degree, students will complete the process of envisioning, developing, and prototyping an entrepreneurial project (i.e. an independently produced performance or a small enterprise) aimed at advancing their career goals. Students will develop and pitch detailed plans for their projects or enterprises and then implement them. The executed project (even if at a workshop or prototyping phase) must engage one or more targeted communities (i.e. particular members of the public) and must be produced independently. In addition to regular meetings with the program director, who serves as faculty for this course, students will be expected to identify a small network of individuals (i.e. similar to an advisory board) that they can contact for guidance or mentorship throughout the planning and implementation process. This course is only open to graduating MA AME students.
