The Art of Business – Develop your entrepreneurial skills through art & creativity
May 28 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
FREE Workshop by James Wanyira
Principles of art can further entrepreneurship in societal, economic and educational contexts, so that entrepreneurs may thrive in a world full of complexity and flux. This workshop teaches, through practical exercises, how the values, attributes and attitudes associated with various art forms can translate into the economic focus of social entrepreneurship thinking.
It’s going to be quite an engaging practical session that will stretch your creative mind beyond what you’d expect. Our businesses are about thinking on our feet; come and test how far you can go and get to tap into other creatives’ minds as well!
