The Entrepreneurial Citizen-Artist covers Artists and Artist Movements and their examples of sustainability. We examine the question: How do we build a life as an Artist? There is no real answer, but we have many examples of how Artists have created models of sustainability. This class will examine the non-profit arts industry, the entertainment industry, and the independent arts (DIY), and artists who have navigated these spaces. Students will learn strategies for creating their own structures for sustainability as Artists in the 21st century, endowed by the history and momentum of past movements. As a required class for the MMPC program, this course will attempt to show the practical ways to engage in artistry as a socially conscious citizen-artist. Entrepreneurship as a Citizen-Artist includes both traditional and radical methods for sustainability. Class materials will include Reading, Writing, Watching, and Listening, which will guide students through the examples of Artists and movements, in conjunction with their Entrepreneurial pursuits. Lectures, class discussions, and guests will help to enrich the materials. The instructor is a working Artist, bringing real-world perspectives and activities to the classroom in real-time. Students should take away a better understanding of the non-profit arts industry, and will be required to complete a hefty grant application, taken from a real world situation.
