Mission & Content Summary

MISSION

In most democratic countries public agencies, third sector organisations, business firms and civil society are deeply involved in solving "wicked" public problems such as the endemic lack of resources to meet public needs. This course is specifically targeted for students interested in spending their career in the creative economy. It aims at providing advanced knowledge and skills on how to handle policy issues, secure financial resources and implement solutions to problems emerging in the cultural sector.

CONTENT SUMMARY

The first part of the course seeks to develop an understanding of policy processes as they unfold in the creative sector. We present students with theory, case studies, hands-on learning and empirical research in the field of cultural policy. Our aim is to support a students' forum for challenging and debating policy issues, as well as their solution, in the domain of the creative economy. In the second part of the course we  center on how public agencies, nonprofit organizations or social entrepreneurs might cope with the challenge of being sustainable from a financial point of view.  We introduce advanced tools and logics a development/finance director uses to raise revenues from different stakeholders and in different markets.
