New Year, new blog

I think a lot about the infrastructure that is needed to support creative work in the arts.  Some of that thinking led to and subsequently derives from my work in arts entrepreneurship education and is given voice in both scholarly articles and my occasional contributions to the entrepreneurthearts blog.  But entrepreneurial skills and an enterprising mindset are just a part of the infrastructure one needs to sustain creative work.  So, I’m launching this site to enter a dialogue with you on a range of topics related to creative infrastructure – personal infrastructure, organizational infrastructure, economic infrastructure, and sometimes even physical infrastructure.  I’ll still be an occasional contributor to entrepreneurthearts, but here I’m as likely to discuss arts entrepreneurship as any of these related topics:

  • Arts policy
  • Arts management
  • Culture and democracy
  • Higher education
  • Arts education
  • Local economies
  • Technology and arts
  • Creativity
  • Arts funding
  • Evaluation and assessment

If you know me personally, then you know I’m also interested in food (locally grown and for the most part cooked in my own kitchen) so there may be a bit of that too, especially as it relates to the infrastructure issues listed above.

Check back regularly, as I hope to post at least a tidbit of an idea daily… or , more realistically, several times a week.

It’s a great way to start the New Year, don’t you think?
