Parameters for Conceptualizing and Realizing a Sustainable Arts Education Organization
This text introduces the term "Social Artrepreneurship" in the context of artistic venture creation and management in the social sector. It introduces educational methods of the Expressive Arts approach in applied artistic social work, and compares these methods with present-day research about entrepreneurship education in arts education programs. Utilizing a case study of an individually developed Social Artreprise concept, the text explores possibilities for working with the Expressive Arts in an entrepreneurial frame. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of how to further conceptualize and develop Social Artrepreneurship. To achieve this goal, the author conducted an interview regarding the concept with successful artist and artistic social entrepreneur Aaron Shneyer. Conjoining the results from various sources involving theory, vision, and practice, this work reveals a helpful set of guidelines for the process of future venture creations incorporating the Expressive Arts.
Narges Shafeghati is a poet, pluralist and dreamer. Her quest to put her gifts in service of humanity keeps washing her to the beginnings of childhood and youth as the source of goodness and to education as the fertile soil for beauty. The same search brought her to the Elbe banks, where she found herself washed to the gates of the MSH Medical School Hamburg to study Expressive Arts in Social Transformation. Following her call, she has been active in interreligious and intercultural understanding, exchange and solidarity work in Germany, the Near East, and recently the United States. There she is currently working on a pluralistic children-parents book and planning to set sail again towards Hamburg.
