Sian Prime, director of the MA in Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship course at Goldsmiths, University of London, will talk about the challenges faced by the UK cultural institutions and creative enterprises and will share her experience of working in the UK.
This lecture will focus predominantly on experiences gained in the UK and how they may be transferable. Looking at the entrepreneurial skills a leader is now required to have, and the leadership skills an artist, designer, and entrepreneur requires, through examples of social and creative companies, a new framework for developing and sustaining cultural and creative industries and individuals will be proposed. Sian will talk about working on such projects as The Academy (together with NESTA foundation)—a residential enterprise development program for highly talented creative graduates, and coaching programs for creative clusters including Tyneside Cinema and Watershed
This lecture is part of the series “Theories and practices of cultural leadership” organised by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art together with the British Council.
