A dancer. A painter. A TV personality. A theatre director. For these artists, entrepreneurship is a way of life.
And that's what the creators of BELL (Building Entrepreneurial Learning for Life) want everyone to understand a solid business sense is a necessary ingredient of even the most creative of endeavors.
A forum series this fall has already tackled topics of cross-cultural issues, starting and growing an entrepreneurial enterprise, social and corporate entrepreneurship, dilemmas and debates even celebrating a few successful UNCG alumni who launched their own businesses.
In the spring, topics will focus on entrepreneurship in the arts. To get people talking about ways in which artists can be entrepreneurs, Dr. John Lee Jellicorse, professor of broadcasting and cinema and director of Entrepreneurial Innovation in the Arts (EIA), has launched a web site that profiles several successful artists. Many are UNCG alumni.
If you know of someone who would make a good profile for that site, contact Dr. John Lee Jellicorse at (336) 334-3846 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schedule for the spring forum series will be released in early December. Check the EIA site for more details.
