Four years ago, I created a series of short videos for use in my class Foundations of Arts Entrepreneurship. I’m no longer teaching the course (and the videos themselves admittedly could use some updating) but for those of you looking for a primer on arts entrepreneurship or some supplemental material for use in your own classes, I’m making these available to the public by posting one video a week for the next fifteen weeks.
In this second module, I introduce basic economic theories of entrepreneurship and explain how they can apply in an arts entrepreneurship context. The module begins with reference to some reading materials that registered students had been required to read. Those materials are:
Andrew Simonet’s Making Your Life as an Artist
Barry Hessenius’s interview with Aaron Dworkin.
Introduction and Chapter 1 of David Cutler’s The Savvy Musician.
