PERF-596 004
Term: SPRING 2016
Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate
Section Title: The Art of the Arts Venture
Starting and growing a project, business, or program in the arts is often framed as a technical challenge -- gathering money, people, and stuff in a marketplace against competing economic ends. But an arts venture is also a deeply aesthetic effort, seeking order, balance, and even beauty not only in what it creates, but also in how it functions. Through hands-on projects, real-world examples, and critical reflection, students develop their own arts venture not only as a business, but also as an on-going, creative act of collective expression.
