AEEN Feb 2013
Welcome to the beginning of a new year !
NEW JOB POSTING HERE!
This edition is rather special. Instead of a monthly interview, the Network is pleased to present the Suggested Outcomes for Arts Entrepreneurship Education, recently endorsed by the College Music Society’s Executive Committee. These outcomes were developed by the Society’s Committee on Music Entrepreneurship Education and signify an important development in the field.
The Committee developed these outcomes as a basis for discussion both within and outside the field and is intended to be an initial platform for further engagement and development. Until a larger discussion between educators from all the arts (and other) disciplines occurs, Arts Entrepreneurship educators are encouraged to adopt these outcomes as needed for either course or curriculum development and assessment / programming purposes. You can find the Suggested Outcomes here.
Also, Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship in the Arts (the field’s only academic journal) will be posting it’s first issue on September 1st, 2012. In the interim, you can read a special “dialogue” by co-editors Linda Essig (ASU) and Gary Beckman (NCSU) here. Note that Submissions for Volume 1 Issue 2 of Artivate will be accepted August 1- September 15, 2012. You can read the full details here.
Congrats to two new programs!
First congrats to Salem College on their new Music Entrepreneurship Minor - second in the country….
…and to North Carolina State University for their new Arts Entrepreneurship Minor.
Some personal thoughts on the field here.
Perhaps the most telling proof that Arts Entrepreneurship education is becoming a part of higher ed arts training is that almost every major music conservatory in the nation now has an active entrepreneurship program!
Details for joining the AEEN LISTSERV are on the Contact page.
In an effort to help new Arts Entrepreneurship educators learn about the field, you can buy Disciplining the Arts: Teaching Entrepreneurship in Context here.
Another work of interest to Arts Entrepreneurship educators has recently been published. You can learn about Ronnie J. Phillips’ Arts Entrepreneurship and Economic Development here.
