If entrepreneurs can become presidents, entrepreneurial artists should reach for higher goals. Yet learning to become an entrepreneur is a relatively new subject in arts education. How to implement entrepreneurship teaching in higher arts education?

The RENEW project has addressed exactly this question over the last two years. Is it possible to match the autonomy of the artist with the drive to create opportunities to perform? Or is the soldier in Stravinsky’s tale that exchanges his violin for knowledge that will help him understand his economic future selling his soul to the devil? RENEW is ready to share its findings with the larger community of conservatoires and other arts education institutions during a conference in The Netherlands hosted by the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague on 28 and 29 September 2018.
…What are key components for programs that will teach our students to develop an entrepreneurial mindset?
…What hard skills are needed by the musician that wants to initiate and manage projects successfully?

…How can you launch an independent artistic practice as a starting professional?
Join us in The Hague and find the answer to these and many other questions related to the implementation of Entrepreneurship teaching in higher music education!
