Explaining Arts Entrepreneurship

explaining entrepreneurship

Here I am in Tbilisi, Georgia, discussing arts entrepreneurship with students from Free University Tbilisi, Georgia Institute of Public Administration, and Georgia Theatre and Film Conservatory. I described arts entrepreneurship as a discovery and creation process for connecting means with desirable ends through an appropriate mediating structure where those ends include a sustainable culture derived from cultural capital and aesthetic products. For the long-form 10,000 word development of that explanation, see “Means and Ends: A Theory Framework for Understanding Entrepreneurship in the US Arts and Culture Sector” in the Journal of Arts Management, Law and Society, recently published.
