Increasingly, the availability of entrepreneurship education is becoming a factor in college choice as fine arts students demand training that helps them create an arts-based career after graduation. For too long, the arts academy has ignored the long-term career outcomes of its graduates and has only recently begun to meaningfully address how students can earn a living as working artists and arts entrepreneurs. Written to address this challenge, Disciplining the Arts explores the policy, programming, and curricular issues in the emerging field of arts entrepreneurship. By articulating the need, purpose and outcomes for arts entrepreneurship education, listening to graduates and identifying models, this essay collection begins an important conversation on preparing students for arts self-employment.

Disciplining the Arts provides a powerful case for making arts entrepreneurship an educational prerogative and lays out specific implementation strategies. Students, the arts community, and world at large will be well served by educators who embrace these lessons. -- David Cutler, author,The Savvy Musician Though America's collegiate schools and departments of fine arts are producing many more professional artists than our current ecosystem for the arts can possibly support, young people continue to flock to arts majors in increasing numbers. Disciplining the Arts examines a number of potential approaches to an improved balance between the supply and demand for young artists, including a careful consideration of the role a more entrepreneurial approach to an artist's education might entail. This is a book of real importance, enthusiastically recommended to young people in music, art, theater, and dance, and to their teachers as well. -- Robert Freeman, Susan Menefee Ragan Regents Professor of Fine Arts, The University of Texas at Austin There are no jobs in the arts, only opportunities. Disciplining the Arts demonstrates a significant change in how arts disciplines help artists live what they love through the essays of university arts administrators, educators, and the students arts entrepreneurship education is meant to impact. -- Joseph S. Roberts, Coleman Foundation Professor of Arts Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management, Columbia College, Chicago
