The Artist Entrepreneur: Innovation & Leadership in the Arts

The NEWEST Minor program that Combines Creativity and Innovation!

The CSUSB College of Arts & Letters together with the CSUSB School of Entrepreneurship are proud to bring you this exclusive minor field of focused study...

The primary purpose of this course is to answer the question “what and who is an artist-entrepreneur?” During our time together we will examine the creative intersection between entrepreneurship and the arts, and address the basics of creativity, ideation, and the freedom mindset. As part of this endeavor you will also acquire an understanding of, and healthy appreciation for, the concepts of vision, story-telling, relevance, community, collaboration, networking, improvisation, creative spaces, mentorship, and arts leadership. This course will feature artist-entrepreneurs as guest lecturers on an almost weekly basis.
