Arts and Cultural Entrepreneurship

An interesting reading can be found in “The Engaged Scholar Magazine” of the Michigan State University entitled “Arts and Cultural Entrepreneurship” (Volume 3, Summer 2008). Its author, C. Kurt Dewhurst, Department of English at the College of Arts and Letters of MSU, talks about […] “leveraging Michigan’s creative talent”.


Here is an abstract:

“Michigan has embraced the power of the creativity economy and has been a leader in reinventing state government by creating an Office of Cultural Economic Development in the Department of History, Arts, and Libraries. This office has worked across state government to create the “Cool Cities” initiative and other innovative strategies to retain and attract the “creative class.”

[…] In the words of Betty Boone, director of the Office of Cultural Economic Development, “Growing entrepreneurship and jobs is a primary objective of the Cultural Economic Development Strategy to leverage Michigan’s creative talent and cultural assets to spur economic growth and build community prosperity” (2006, p. 1).”
