There’s a song by Mozes and the Firstborn with the lyric “Skills, I got skills.” The tune kept going through my head today during the undergraduate arts entrepreneurship seminar as the students developed their inventory of means: who they are, what they know, and who they know. The rest of the song is irrelevant (or even antithetical) to the effectual approach to entrepreneurship the students are employing to build an arts-based venture, but they developed a truly robust inventory. In a way, the class is now in their hands. I will guide them and prompt them (and act as amanuensis) over the next twelve weeks, but they will be creating an arts-based enterprise out of the knowledge, networks, and passions they possess.
