Cases on Arts Entrepreneurship (Tonelli, M., & Heise, A. [Eds.]. [2023]. Cases on Arts Entrepreneurship. Edward Elgar Publishing) presents a collection of thirteen case studies that will be much appreciated by professors who teach and students who are studying entrepreneurship in the arts. Each case study exhibits a similar framework: a descriptive narrative that runs between seven and sixteen pages, including references; Teaching Notes that include an abstract, learning outcomes, keyword topics, discussion questions, a seventy-five-minute class plan, and supplemental readings (if any). The editors provide a brief introduction to the book’s purpose as well as a seven-page concluding chapter that identifies five themes that emerge across chapters: exposure to the arts at a young age, network and relationship building, kindness and collaboration, financial management, and balancing multiple income streams.
