"Wayne State targets biz-minded artists with new program"
by Jon Zemke
The Artrepreneurship program is expected to give creatively-inclined graduate students at Wayne State University the business skills necessary to turn their artistic passions into viable careers. The program, which originated out of the university's ArtsIMPACT incubator in TechTown, is set to begin recruiting students and building an advisory board now. Classes should begin in the fall with forums that mix business people with local artists. "These people who are ready to make that commitment have a lot of energy and passion," says Anthony Lake, head of Wayne State's Master of Fine Arts Theater Management program. "I always tell them you don't need to be an accountant but you need to understand what the accountant is saying."
