Creativity and New Venture Creation in the Arts

4th Biennial Symposium on Entrepreneurship and the Arts

(presented in collaboration with the UW-Madison Bolz Center for Arts Administration)

This two day event will allow participants to explore the processes, outcomes, and impacts of new venture creation in the arts through hands-on workshops, speakers, pitch sessions, and research presentations. The 4th Biennial Symposium features a multi-session interactive workshop on creativity led by Elizabeth Long-Lingo, as she guides participants through a process to take an idea from ideation to pitch.

The Symposium will be anchored by keynote speeches from Ruby Lerner, CEO of Creative Capital, and Steven J. Tepper, Dean of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and will include concurrent sessions on theory, practice, and pedagogy for arts entrepreneurship, creativity, and new venture creation in the arts. Student ventures and research will be showcased in special sessions.
