Editor's Introduction to the Winter 2016 Issue

Linda Essig


This Winter 2016 issue of Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship in the Arts focuses on curriculum and pedagogy. Two book reviews also contribute to this theme. Both feature articles, Marco Thom's “Crucial Skills for the Entrepreneurial Success of Fine Artists†and Stephen Brandenburg, Tim Roosen, and Mettina Veenstra's “Toward an Adapted Business Modeling Method to Improve Entrepreneurial Skills Among Art Students†delineate skills required for entrepreneurial success by artists and creative industries professionals as determined through qualitative or quantitative surveys of art and design instructors and students. Brandenburg and his collaborators evaluate the usefulness of several common business modeling tools for teaching toward these skillsets and finds that these tools are more effective for teaching entrepreneurial process than for building personal skills.
