Social Entrepreneurship defines finding new and better ways to work with and solve current and future welfare challenges.
The course focuses on social entrepreneurship, which includes testing new forms of citizen involvement and user participation in development phases. This approach can have co-production as a starting point. Here professional developers methodically involve citizens, public institutions or private companies as co-producers with the goal to find new ways to produce welfare solutions. Co-production can be applied as a methodical approach in the meeting between the artistic and the social field.
Working with social entrepreneurship is an important part of discovering new employment opportunities for artistic and creative students.
The course has been held.
