6th Biennial Symposium on Entrepreneurship in the Arts

Arizona State University will present its 6th Biennial Symposium on Entrepreneurship and the Arts on May 3-4, 2019. If you would like to learn more, check back in Winter 2018 and email  

The theme of the 2017 symposium was: “Arts Entrepreneurship In, With, and For Communities.” Participants explored the nature of arts entrepreneurial action in community settings and modes of interaction between artists and their communities. Framed by an interactive workshop on Critical Response Process led by Liz Lerman and John Borstel, and anchored by a keynote speech by Carlton Turner, founding executive director of Alternate Roots, the symposium also included concurrent sessions on theory, practice and pedagogy for arts entrepreneurship in, with, and for communities.
