Creative Entrepreneurship


DATES: July 15 -27, 2019

About the course

The program focuses on the contemporary art market and the ways to get involved in it. The goal of the course is to transform you from consumer to maker in the cultural field.

Q&A sessions, lectures and dinners with the makers of the Biennale and its satellite exhibitions will give you insider knowledge of creating art projects. You will work on a group project dedicated to the Venice Biennale and create a roadmap for your personal creative goals. We will work together on your skills and provide the support and financial advice you need to turn your idea into reality.

In collaboration with Danielle Krysa aka TheJealousCurator.
