Arizona State University will host the fifth biennial Pave Symposium on Entrepreneurship and the Arts next month.
This year’s symposium will focus on “Art Entrepreneurship In, With and For Communities,” and it will be held on the Tempe Campus on May 5-6 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Multiple Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts initiatives, including “Projecting All Voices” and “Creative Placemaking,” will be addressed at the all-day symposium. Attendees will participate in sessions on theory and practice for entrepreneurship in the arts, especially with respect to community engagement and creative peacemaking. The day will include an interactive workshop on “Critical Response Process” and keynote speeches from Steven J. Tepper, dean of the Herberger Institute for Design, and Carlton Turner, executive director of Alternate Roots.
There will also be time for field excursions to downtown Phoenix and downtown Mesa to check out some of the creative placemaking initiatives with artists and arts administrators, allowing students and artists to interact with one another.
The event is sponsored in party by Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and The Kresge Foundation.
Registration is required for this event. The cost is $135 for the general public and $50 for ASU students, which covers all events on both days, including a light breakfast and lunch.
