Theatre Entrepreneurship Workshop for ICTheatre

David delivered an online workshop about Theatre Entrepreneurship for final year students at the Institute for Contemporary Theatre (ICTheatre).

His workshop focused on creative entrepreneurship, specifically how practitioners can use theatre entrepreneurship to develop their careers, enterprises and organisations.

David shared his professional expertise and international experience with students in the interactive workshop.

Topics included:
– Creativity in the office as well as the studio
– How to design a creative enterprise in the world of theatre
– How to create your own personal and organisational ‘business formula’
– Business models including licensing of intellectual property

As well as making presentations during the workshop, David answered questions from students about theatre entrepreneurship.
