The Creative Entrepreneurs Project looks at how to develop an online system to directly help the creative sector in Rural Ireland generate employment and sustainability thereby creating jobs within the rural community.
It seems that since the formation of the new government all the talk within the Arts sector has been around the fact that Ireland doesn’t have a separate Minister or department for the Arts. Now whilst I totally agree with this stance we seem to be spending an inordinate amount of time on talking about it and wishing for change without actually doing or showing how life can be different by using what we already have. As in getting on with things and making a better case by talking “their” language.
It seems incredible to me that the Arts sector is so reticent to adopt change. When I say change I am talking about the adoption of business change not creative change as we are still the leading sector in that respect. No, treating art like a business is a taboo, the very mention of the words business and art in the same breath grates in the mouth of most on the artistic side.
