About us

The mission of ActinArt network is to support and facilitate Nordic/Baltic artistic Higher Education Institutions’ process in developing an entrepreneurial mindset within artistic curriculas. 

Entrepreneurial mindset refers to a set of hard and soft skills helping students and teachers to increase awareness of the importance of career building, to develop a proactive approach to professional integration and share knowledge of employment opportunities.

The importance of ActinArt lies in facilitating students, alumni, faculty and administration of the universities offering them a view of social, managerial, legal and financial aspects of acting in the art world professionally as well as being an educator or administrator.

ActinArt puts an emphasis  on the importance of freedom and artistic expressions of creative people, thus not trying to “fit” students into given “frames” of the meaning of being entrepreneurial, letting students to understand and develop their entrepreneurial mindset by themselves instead.
