What I AM talking about here is the entrepreneurial skills creatives need to provide fulfilling sustainable careers, as to be honest, the lack of any basic entrepreneurial education taught in art colleges and schools at present is appalling.
CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY bridges two apparently remote poles of human activities – CREATIVITY & BUSINESS to combat unemployment, create new jobs, support development & personal growth.
CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY at the Centre for Creative Practices is the first entrepreneurial offline and online development programme which combines a physical space for desk / office sharing, an incubator programme, and accelerator programme and access to other creatives, funders, mentors, resources for CREATIVES in Ireland helping them to become successful and sustainable entrepreneurs.
The value proposition is central to the overall business model and should form the anchor for all decision-making, operations, and customer engagement. It is more than a set of words; more than a set of marketing messages; it is the framework for how the business aligns its activities and output with its target audience’s needs, to deliver a compelling experience that can ultimately be monetized through an exchange of value.
What are the main differences between Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas and the Lean Canvas by Ash Maurya. Let’s have a look and then later in the series we will look at how you can apply both to your creative business.
The core issue at stake is to identify and design adequate tools enabling students and graduates of creative disciplines to successfully develop their business ideas.
One of the critical tools missing at present in creative education is a business planning model that reflects the specifics of the creative sector. Lets explore this more.
We would love for you to discover more about our creative entrepreneurs programme.

Five Minutes on The Street
This project is a five minute short film from the perspective of a homeless person sitting on the cold streets of Dublin. This is done via an actor and will records how the homeless on the streets of Dublin are ignored by many of the people who walk past them on the street.
Homeless is an issue that every city faces and Dublin is no exception to this.The purpose of Five Minutes on The Street is to highlight the problem of homelessness that Dublin face’s.
As we walk to and from where we need to go throughout our day, we ignore the people who are forced to live on the streets. The homeless on the streets of Dublin are glossed over like a piece of the scenery.
There is no helping people who face these issues if they are not even acknowledged as even being there. By ignoring the issue itw will not get any better, it will only get worse.
The goal of Five Minutes on The Streets is to hopefully snap people back into seeing the issue of homelessness. By showing them how the homeless are ignored, the hope is that they will be more aware and empathetic to the homeless people that they pass every day. By reawakening this awareness, more people we be in a better place to help those facing the struggle of homelessness and start to solve the issue of homelessness.
