Economies of the Creative

How can graduates of art colleges be supported in setting up their own company? What competences and qualities do they need to provide in order to successfully run a business?
The Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship research project provides answers to these questions. It aims at creating a start-up and mentoring platform at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design. There, students from art academies are to be prepared for a successful entry into professional and working life – in both the private and public sectors.
In the context of the Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship project, both days of the symposium will discuss the economics of creative questions in the field of art, design and economics: The focus shall be on the capacity of culture to initiate social transformation processes.
