Network Programme

Cultural Entrepreneurship shapes minds. How can we shape Cultural Entrepreneurship?

The FHNW Academy of Art and Design has been cooperating with swissnex Boston with the aim of enhancing the academic exchange and design discourse between Basel and Boston since 2018. The project is concerned with incubator cultures at the interface of design, the academy and the markets.

What conditions do we want to foster at art schools and universities to promote sustainable entrepreneurial endeavors? How do current social and ecological challenges affect such programs? And what should we expect from the incubators of tomorrow? The event will approach these questions from the perspectives of teaching, research, business, and the individual artistic process.

The network-group consists of teachers, researchers and designers. Projects and initiatives from the metaLAB (at) Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University, Parsons School of Design at The New School, RISD, and FHNW Academy of Art and Design have been presented and discussed so far.
