Arts Entrepreneurship: What it takes and How it works
Entrepreneurship traditionally describes the creation of new business ventures but it has become a synonym for progressive thought and refers generally to the process of creating something new (with value) and assuming the risks and rewards.

Co-presented by the WKCDA and the Arts Administrators Association, the 2013 Cultural Leadership Summit to be held on May 27-29 will focus on the theme Arts Entrepreneurship – What it Takes and How it Works. International, regional and local cultural leaders will come together and examine how the concept of entrepreneurship can be applied in the formation and operation of successful commercial arts enterprises, as well as in the sustainable development of not-for-profit arts organisations through developing new audiences, new format of productions, new modes of operation and new sources of income. Special attention will also be given to the current development of arts entrepreneurship in Chinese-speaking territories. This theme is especially relevant to arts organisations as the learning of entrepreneurship will better equip them to thrive and to face the increased competition over scarce resources (audiences and funding support) in the coming years.
