Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education Conference

SMU Meadows School of the Arts

June 6-7, 2014

Southern Methodist University Dallas, Texas

Registration: $50, Students $35


Arts Entrepreneurship educators, program directors, students, working artists and the curious are invited to the first national meeting dedicated to arts entrepreneurship education. The conference will focus on helping participants engage with new pedagogical techniques and the larger issues surrounding the field.

The Cornerstone of an Academic Society

The most important aspect of the conference will be the formation of an academic society for arts entrepreneurship educators. In summer 2013, a small group of arts entrepreneurship educators met at North Carolina State University to establish the organization’s foundation. The Arts Entrepreneurship Educators Conference is only one outcome of this important work.

Open Call for Proposals: Workshop proposals are restricted to pedagogical concerns and panel discussions are restricted to topics of specific interest to arts entrepreneurship educators.

This peer-reviewed call opens February 16, 2014 and closes April 1, 2014. Proposals should include: Format (workshop or panel), topic, executive summary, technology requirements and a 250-word description.
