Event details

This event explores evolving pathways for creative and cultural work – it looks at how new modes of work are being generated by enterprising activities that typically fall outside traditional notions of entrepreneurialism.

The lab offers a space to consider and discuss how people are self-actualising their creative aspirations by ‘creating creative work’ in unexpected ways, often through leveraging the affordances new digital tools and platforms. This will be of particular interest to students and educators who are interested in the enterprising nature of creative career development and evolving creative work practices.

More about the event: The lab forms part of a research study called ‘Unexpected Enterprises’ which explores how media is being used to engage in new forms of entrepreneurship that are unexpected and how these practices might impact the way media enterprise is taught in higher education. Given the changing landscape of media use for creative and cultural production, especially in the realm of participatory and online digital culture, we want to better understand how technical and social innovations give rise to enterprising behaviour that may be hidden or unrecognised within traditional notions of entrepreneurship. The project aims to bring together students, educators/researchers and industry practitioners to consider what forms of media entrepreneurship are emerging and implications for teaching and learning approaches in higher education.

This event is open to University of Southampton staff and students.
