The conference will be organized by UNISINOS (University of Vale do Rio dos Sinos) and CECI (the Center for Advanced Studies in Integrated Conservation).

The conference will be built around a selected, refereed and limited number of papers.

This event is a follow-up to the 1st International Conference on Teaching and Learning Cultural Entrepreneurship, held in Duluth, Minnesota, USA, from June 10-12 2015, where the book Creating Cultural Capital: Cultural Entrepreneurship in Theory, Pedagogy and Practice (Eburon Academic Press: Delft, 2015) was launched, and where conference participants created the Duluth Manifesto of Cultural Entrepreneurship (

Abstracts of up 400 words should be submitted in MS Word format. The deadline for submitting abstracts for the conference is April 30, 2016 and acceptance and invitations to submit full papers to be presented in the conference must be sent out by May 30, 2016.

Authors of selected papers can also resubmit their papers for being published in the forthcoming book, to be launched after the conference, entitled Cultivating Creative Environments: Epistemic and Ethical Issues of Teaching, Researching, Learning and Practicing Cultural Entrepreneurship. Both academics, and professionals in the field are invited to write/publish.

Conference and publication languages will be US English and Portuguese. However, all abstracts for the conference must be submitted in English.

Papers should focus on discussing and addressing cultural and creative entrepreneurship initiatives, specifically their policies, pedagogies and curriculum development, within the Latin American or global context, addressing at least two of the five thematic areas listed below:

1.    Policies, pedagogies and curriculum development

Contributions to this section should address the development of teaching and learning techniques to improve imagination, creativity, and innovation. These traits serve as fundamental tools and potential resources for economic development and the vitality, sustainability, and continuing enrichment of cultures, economies, and societies.

What are the philosophical/ideological/political/practical approaches to the design of our curricula? Most importantly, what makes our curricula different from traditional business, management and entrepreneurship programs? And why is there a need for programs that combine the arts, culture, economics, management and/or entrepreneurship?

How can cultural entrepreneurs use imagination and creativity, specifically focusing on the ways in which crafts, cultural assets, community arts, and visual/performing arts enrich individuals and communities, develop creative activities, improve the quality of life, and preserve and enhance the specificities and diversity of our respective cultures?

2. Risk management and cooperation

How do cultural and social entrepreneurs undertake risks and cooperate in order to renew society and cultures in important ways, vital to all nations and peoples?

How can cultural entrepreneurship become not only an attitude, but also an increasing form of work and practice, opening new jobs and opportunities in the emerging knowledge economy, developing innovative forms of cooperation inside and outside of the creative industries, including all strata and strands within an evolving society?

3. Learning environment improvement

Considering that people of all ages, particularly the young, need purposeful yet playful, dynamic, and engaging learning environments, how can we invoke and provoke, explore and experience, challenge and inspire, develop and inform, discover and create, and assess and improve their lives?

4. Education in cultural entrepreneurship

Considering that education in cultural entrepreneurship provides a lot of opportunities to universities and other learning institutions to open their doors to society, how can we explore new ways of learning in continuous interaction with society?

How can institutions across primary, secondary, and higher education as well as informal learning institutions nourish the human spirit in an interdisciplinary manner that bridges knowledge, real-world experience, and personal, social and business competencies?

Also, authors may present how ongoing research, connected to practice, policy-making and education, is needed and useful to contribute to the professionalization of cultural entrepreneurship.

5. Practitioners critique and Ethical issues

How do we, in each of our programs, connect students to potential employers, or prepare them to create their own business? Authors should address the traditions, procedures and models for both internship and mentorship programs that are connected to cultural entrepreneurship and arts management programs. Papers in this category should present their student placement strategies and approaches, and explain how they are connecting students to the job market.

What is a practitioner’s view of art management and cultural economics/entrepreneurship programs? From the perspective of employers, activists and community organizers, what are critical skills elements that must be present or be developed in these programs?

What cannot be taught inside the academy? What is the connection between practitioner and academic approaches to entrepreneurship training? And is there an ethical debate involved in the role of the art manager or cultural entrepreneur? Does the art manager or cultural entrepreneur take away the critical social dimension of art?

The Book Cultivating Creative Environments:
Epistemic and Ethical Issues of Teaching, Researching, Learning and Practicing Cultural Entrepreneurship

This publication invites contributions from the global research community studying cultural and creative entrepreneurship and the evolution of training for the creative industries. It will comprise academic articles that address theory, research and practical issues related to current developments within the field of education in Cultural Entrepreneurship, ranging from educational research in teaching creativity and innovation, as well as the entrepreneurial dimension of cultural and creative industries.

The book will focus on theoretical, pedagogical and practical aspects the following scope:

a. Policies, pedagogies and curriculum development
b. Risk management and cooperation
c. Learning environment improvement
d. Education in cultural entrepreneurship
e. Practitioners critique and Ethical issues

The book will be published in two languages: US English and Portuguese.

Systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses dealing with the issues related to the topics under discussion are also welcome.
