Artists and entrepreneurs alike are motivated by visions of the world as it can be. This class prepares artists to become problem-solvers, advancing the role of the performing arts in a fast-changing world. At its core, this class is about a mindset (ways of knowing, thinking, interacting and being) that is directly relevant to your artistry, your career, and your academic pursuits. This class is designed to not only improve students’ conceptual understanding of entrepreneurship as it relates to the performing arts, but also to engage the class, as a whole, in experiential learning. Lectures and class discussions will provide an overview of the principles and methodologies of entrepreneurship and design thinking. We’ll use these to explore existing and emergent models for artists’ professional roles, incorporating the pillars of entrepreneurial thinking: vision, initiative, risk, and value. Class assignments will guide you in articulating your personal and professional goals, stimulating creativity and critical thinking, and expanding your sense of possibility for what an artist can be and do.
