Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (Music pathway)

The course allows you to develop the business/entrepreneurial skills and attributes to commercialise on your creative and cultural practices and/or knowledge; you will be able to build on a historical and theoretical understanding of cultural and creative industries and the development of a cultural economy to create your own creative initiatives, which might be research-based, policy-based, practice-based, or a combination of any or all of these; the MA will be taught in partnership by a number of departments within Goldsmiths and with key individuals and organisations in the creative and cultural industries sector; our collective approach is to integrate entrepreneurship within the development of creative practices and to take a creative approach to the development of new businesses and the infrastructure that supports them.
