Studying Cultural Entrepreneurship

Part 1 of the Workshop Series on Cultural Entrepreneurship: Studying, Teaching, Doing

Torsdag, 5 marts, 2015 - 09:00 to 17:00

Workshop on Studying Cultural Entrepreneurship. The workshop is part of a series which aims to map the nascent field of cultural entrepreneurship. The workshop series focuses on the current state of theorizing cultural entrepreneurship, the ways that cultural entrepreneurship is taught (in art academies, conservatories, performing art schools, film academies and in management education), and how cultural entrepreneurship is performed in contemporary society.

Recent studies have suggested, albeit in no conclusive manner, that cultural entrepreneurship cannot be reduced to an economic framework for arts and culture as it encompasses a numbers of other features such as identity formation, urban development, political resistance, artistic research and societal dispersion of artistic practices. Yet at the same time, these studies also suggest that the economic aspect cannot be fully disregarded. With these paradoxes, research on cultural entrepreneurship can by no means be regarded as fully matured in any sense.

The objective of the first workshop is to map the field of cultural entrepreneurship in theoretical and conceptual terms with the aim of giving direction to further research in the field: what is the current state of the art, and what are the relevant research  questions to be addressed as well as concepts to be employed in the future?

The workshop is the first in a series of three conducted in collaboration with and supported by the CBS Entrepreneurship Platform and the European Haniel Program on Entrepreneurship and the Humanities.
