Vol. 9 No. 1 (2020): Spring 2020
In the newest issue of Artivate, we open with thoughts on COVID-19 and the challenges facing artists and the arts community as the disease takes lives and turns others upside down. We're also eager to press forward despite the challenges and welcome you to an exciting two-part publication that features a special section dedicated to understanding arts entrepreneurship in Detroit, assembled by guest editors Susan Badger Booth and Mark Clague. Here you'll find coverage on the city's perpetual renaissance in the context COVID-19; a report on music venues, neighborhood history, and arts placemaking; a contemporary story of what has been called "the most accessible orchestra on the planet"; and a review of the recently published Canvas Detroit. In part two of our spring 2020 issue, we bring you a range of articles focused on arts entrepreneurship in Ghana, Canada, and the United States, highlighting the latest in research and analysis by arts entrepreneurship scholars across the academy.
