In general, we love meeting new artlovers and sharing ideas. And when it’s for helping artists and discussing solutions for them, it’s even better. Last week we felt very honoured to welcome a group of students from the Rotterdam School of Management doing their Masters in International Management. As they were meeting with several companies in Berlin, they contacted us to visit our office and find out more about what we do. And most of all, together they decided to help one of our artists improve her business plan.
Business Meets Visual Arts
A part of the visit was dedicated to introducing Book a Street Artist and what we do on a daily basis. But rather than only talking about our business, we wanted to let one of our artists benefit from some helpful insights.
As a result, during that morning, the main focus was to help Frollein Motte with her career as a visual artist and illustrator – her art became the topic of a case study for the students to work on.
They had a chat with the artist, split up in three small groups and started putting together recommendations regarding some essential points of her business plan. After an hour of brainstorming, each group presented their ideas in front of everyone.
Helping Frollein Motte Grow her Business
“They were very honest and gave thoughtful advice such as ‘Think about your value and the values of your work’! “
As a small startup, we’re always excited to show our activities to business and arts enthusiasts. Therefore having a team of passionate students sharing their ideas with Frollein Motte was really inspiring. As they mentioned it, using their business knowledge to help an artistic cause was an unusual and interesting exercise for them.
At Book a Street Artist, we believe in artrepreneurship. Therefore we want to encourage everyone to bring their own contribution to the art world. It was a wonderful experience and we’re very thankful for hosting these two groups of students on that very exciting Friday morning.
