FEDELIMA & RIF PRESENT: POPULAR MUSIC VENUES, FROM ARTISTIC PROJECT TO BUSINESS PLAN

In a complex european economic context, cultural entrepreneurship is the subject of increased interest by public authorities, most recently after a report published this summer by Steven Hearn that characterized the cultural entrepreneur as  « a corporate body registered with the registry of commerce and companies », and whose initiative «is in a entrepreneurial logic (rentability, growth, profit) ».
At the same time, a law on the social and solidarity economy has been adopted by the national assembly, which recognizes other forms of entrepreneurship, associative as well as cooperative, which are non lucrative. These forms are numerous within the artistic and cultural fields. The management of cultural facilities and artistic production structures, for example, participate directly in the economic development of their region. The professionalization of the popular music sector as a whole has brought its actors to assume their entrepreneurial dimension and their responsibilities as an employer, the same as any other company would. Without access to tools and means of economic development, they regrouped themselves into a national and regional network which has allowed the elaboration end implementation of a number of tools, methods and engineering that accompany their initiatives.
