This course teaches second semester CECL graduate students to identify challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurial interventions in the creative industries and arts and culture sectors. It uses frameworks for identifying problems and recognizing opportunities for intervention as an entry point for new projects in the creative and cultural industries. Is a foundational seminar for the CECL students as they work to develop proposals for their capstone Applied Projects, which require them to launch an intervention in art and design broadly conceived. More about these projects can be found on the program website: https://herbergerinstitute.asu.edu/research-and-initiatives/enterprise-and-entrepreneurship-programs/curb-enterprise-leadership/master-of-arts.
The class is taught with a combination of short lectures, class discussions, and collaborative exercises. The final project for the class is a draft prospectus and presentation pitch for the Applied Project; the CECL program has an established outline to guide students in developing this document. There is an existing syllabus for this course that the Faculty Associate will use as a foundation, but they will also work with the CECL Program Director to revise the class to include lessons in pitching ideas and communicating work to diverse stakeholders both in writing and in conversation.
The ideal Faculty Associate for this course will have experience as a leader or entrepreneur in the creative industries that they can reference and use as an entry point to further conversation among students.
The class will happen remotely via ASU Sync to enable guests and students to meet. The class meets weekly during A session of spring 2021 semester, January 11 through March 2, 2021.
