THE BIGGER CONTEXT:
Economic, political, societal and technological matters are transforming our lives.
The way we live, think, feel, act, is shifting.
The way we ‘work’ is converting.
Consequently, 21st century skills emerged and were defined to demarcate new ways to cope with an ever-changing personal and work life, and to balance those.
TIMES ARE CHANGING.
The way we live &
work is changing...
what is seemingly not keeping up with the change is a nowadays increasingly often criticised education system.
Whereas, there are attempts and successful examples on a new system and better said approach for education, the general approach to education is still rigid and often does not serve human kind positively.

what about our
There is a gap in between what its ‘out there’ and what ‘we are producing’.
Accordingly, there is a lack of action in how we prepare current and new generations to not only adapt and ‘survive’ this ever-changing circle of life, but to enjoy it truly, while living up to their own purpose and true potential, whilst remaining sustainable from both a personal and a career perspective.
Scholarly studies and market researches prove that this is still an ongoing challenge.

From a specialized to a fusion approach,
CESA offers an artistic education with international guest teachers,
organisations and artistic companies.
By being aware and/or incorporating different genres within an art form, the resident artist will not only become inherently more open towards the endless possibilities that the personal development and artistic creativity can offer, but will also be provided with skills that make it possible to capitalize on, and to create art that can also(!) attract a less segmented part of society. This growth will contribute to the long-term sustainability of artists and art itself…
’Art is for everyone!’
TIMES ARE CHANGING.
Cultural and Social sciences, such as Cultural Economics-, Cultural Sociology, Management Studies, Communication Sciences, Positive Psychology and understanding
the process and implementation of
cultural policy-making for instance, can present the participant with new perspectives.
Based on an artistic yet also theoretical education the future trendsetter artist can, on the one hand, get more inspiration to create art that has relevance to society. On the other hand a solid theoretical backbone, can add to the toolkit of the artist that makes it easier to navigate between (side) jobs (when needed), and can contribute to a more flexible and broader range of possibilities with regard to a (non-artistic yet creative) career after (or during) the artistic profession.
In addition –on the long-term-, having more (firsthand) experts in positions that the cultural and creative sector is depending on (policy-making, management roles etc.) can only benefit the arts sector on the long term.

‘take initiative’, ‘creative problem solving skills’,
'self-management' and ‘getting things done’,
are just a few key phrases of the multifaceted aspects of an entrepreneurial attitude.
These skills are nowadays indispensable, especially when considering the economically challenging cultural & creative sector and thus the artists.
This way, the artistic and theoretical skills in combination with the enhancement of an entrepreneurial mind are extremely important
–if not crucial- for the survival for
the new generation (trendsetter) artists / creatives.
Creative & Social Entrepreneurship are at the focus.
