Cultural entrepreneurs combine their passion for creative and cultural products and programs with creative, out-of-the-box thinking to forge the resilience of the arts sectors and the wider communities they serve. Cultural entrepreneurs employ innovative approaches to audience engagement—like a roving theater company, pop-up museum, or smartphone app for artistic collaboration—to deliver artistic value to wide and diverse audiences and make a positive social, environmental, and economic impact. Today’s cultural entrepreneurs operate in diverse professional environments, from consulting for organizational transformation to launching a creative startup. By understanding community impacts and activating a range of cultural and creative experiences, cultural entrepreneurs play a crucial role in ensuring the vitality of artistic engagement, advancing community goals, and strengthening society.
The Graduate Certificate in Cultural Entrepreneurship empowers students with a critical, creative perspective on arts programming and management and a myriad of creative management tools that harness new technologies for artistic engagement.
The program prepares students to become innovators in a range of artistic and cultural disciplines, from music, visual art, theater, and dance to community-building and transformation.
