Cultural Entrepreneurship: The Cultural Worker’s Experience of Entrepreneurship
By Annette Naudin
About the book
This book explores the lived experience of cultural entrepreneurship to comment on the challenges associated with cultural labour including the insecurities of managing precarious working conditions. Drawing on interviews conducted with cultural workers, it focuses on how individuals articulate their experience of entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative industries. Beyond the caricatures usually associated with entrepreneurial identities, this study encourages individuals to construct their story within a dynamic context, a space they shape as well as being shaped by it.
