Creative Alternatives 2012 What is it all about? and program for the course

The course serves as an introduction about basic thoughts and tools we will need to see and think ourselves as actors in the general and vague field of "creative economy". What do we mean with it - why are we interested in it - what can we do about it? Beyond a general attitude of "take the money and run". We need to find a sustainable and intelligent, even critical and creative attitude towards economy, creative business, enterprise. We need to understand the world we live in - because we're about to contribute to it's making.

This year my idea is to engage students more in experimenting alternative ways of seeing and thinking themselves, in practice - and this will be done by constructing an experimental space. 

To pass the course you will be expected to be present, and active. I have invited some experts to talk, to tell you about their experiences and their expertise. Use the possibility and ask them all the questions you have always wanted! I will also be giving you assignments along the meetings, plus the main joint experimental enterprise.
Remember also to give feedback!


11.9. What has Creativity got to do with it? We will also meet Dharma and Gregg and have no bananas or anything else for that matter - and go on from there.

18.9. Alternative practices of production. For ARTS students the course happens in Reposaari, mingled with "Dialogues of Art and Theory" course. For School of Economy students there will be an assignment in storytelling.

25.9. Alternative examples and visitors

3.10 - 4.10: Experimental Space to open!

9.10 Final theoretical-practical insert and visitor.
