Stephen Carradini, CRDM Class of 2017, was a respondent on the plenary closing panel “Emerging Voices: Directions for the Field” at the Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education (SAEE) Second Annual Conference on October 16-17. It was hosted by The Lawrence and Isabel Barnett Center for Integrated Arts and Enterprise at The Ohio State University.
The panelists were asked to write questions for the audience; after an audience member made a statement, the panelist responsible for writing the question was asked to respond. Stephen’s questions revolved around the need for research on active arts entrepreneurs and the types of jobs necessary in the emerging field to facilitate that type of research activity.
In addition to panel presentations, the conference included research presentations, workshops, and arts performances. The conference aims to bring awareness to the national conversation concerning the gap between an education in the arts and arts entrepreneurship.
This was Stephen’s second year on the “Emerging Voices” panel.
