stART It Up: Cultural Entrepreneurship Forum

ACM Connects, an initiative of the Department of Arts, Culture and Media of the University of Toronto, Canada that supports the departmental academic curriculum by presenting a range of artistic, cultural, and scholarly programming each year, is organizing next Wednesday 8 February a panel and workshop entitled ‘stART It Up: Cultural Entrepreneurship Forum’.

The panel of community and alumni ‘Cultural Entrepreneurs’ will try to help participants “understand more about this rapidly growing field and to see how they can be a part of it. The talk will be followed by a workshop and small group discussion. The organizers are inviting participants to bring their ideas and explore how they can ‘stART It Up’ too.”

African Arts Institute Training Course

The African Arts Institute is organizing on 20 to 29 July 2015 a Cultural Entrepreneurship Training Course in Cape Town, South Africa, as part of the broader African Cultural Leadership Programme, which has been running since 2012 in more than 41 African countries. The call for application is closed but this is an ongoing program so keep an eye on it.

I find it impressive that the course is taking 10 full days and would very much like to know how would professionals come out of it. The Course is designed for “creative business minds who have experience as
cultural entrepreneurs playing an inspiring, creative, innovative role in the cultural and creative industries. It seeks to nurture, mentor and empower cultural entrepreneurs to better their trade in cultural goods and services and at the same time, contribute to sustainable professional networks.”
