Exploring the links between storytelling and entrepreneurship
In January 2016 the Business & IP Centre received a grant from the Leverhulme Trust’s Artist in Residence Grant Scheme to appoint Melissa Addey as a Writer in Residence. Over the past ten months Melissa has been working with users of the Centre to explore the links between storytelling and entrepreneurship.
This event will present the results of Melissa’s work during the residency and exhibit examples of some of the work that has been undertaken.
The Artist in Residence project has enabled users of the Centre to explore the application of creative writing and narrative techniques as business strategies, actively raising awareness of the fruitful connections between business, creativity and storytelling in both practical and theoretical ways. The residency has also developed connections between the Library’s business audiences and other areas of collection specialism, increasing opportunities for inter-disciplinary research and encouraging business users to be inspired by the unique items held in the Library’s vast collection.
Thanks must go to the Leverhulme Trust for their support of this project, and in addition to the business owners and entrepreneurs who have engaged with the project through attending workshops and one-to-ones and generously sharing their stories and experiences.
This is your chance to come along and see the benefits of linking storytelling and entrepreneurship.
This event is part of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016. To see more events taking place during the week click here.
