Class One, Entrepreneurship in Music and the Arts


  1. Jim:

    I’m not convinced that the field is “ill-defined” but rather that the field is developing. The fundamental question – for me at least – is “Is arts entrepreneurship a discipline unto itself or (merely) the application of entrepreneurial processes to arts disciplines?” I raise this question in the opening article of the first issue of “Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship in the Arts” available at and hope to find some answers at the AAAE conference in March, at which Andrew Taylor, Margaret Wyszomirski, Susan Badger Booth and I will participate in a roundtable discussion “What Do We Mean When We Talk About Arts Entrepreneurship?” based on the definitional issues raised in the Artivate piece.

    Hopefully, we’ll see you there!

    I want to urge the broadest inclusiveness in considering what “entrepreneurship” may be. Art itself is entrepreneurship. Beethoven was a fine entrepreneur — and so was John Cage.

  4. The second issue of Artivate focuses on arts entrepreneurship pedagogy. I hope you will find it useful: -LE
