BUSINESS MODEL CANVAS


BusinessModelBlocks

 

 

In this workshop participants will learn about the methodology of Business Model Canvas, which is a visual chart that gives a graphical representation of a business plan. The Business Model Canvas introduces simple techniques in order to assist participants in shaping their ideas, make plans and set goals. In addition we will focus on grant applications, as business models and applications often follow the same principles in practice.

For many people who write, “good enough”” is all that is expected of them. But what can really help you stand out is great storytelling. In this session we’ll cover some of the least discussed principles of great storytelling that will help you push yourself beyond the limits you may have already, unconsciously set for yourself.

Screening: THE MAN

Ragnar_Kjartansson_The_Man

Ragnar Kjartansson’s interest in music often leads him to focus on the persona of the performer. The Man presents a portrait of American blues musician Pinetop Perkins playing an upright piano improbably situated in a field just outside of Austin, Texas. Born in 1919 in Belzoni, Mississippi, Perkins began playing guitar and piano during the rise of the Delta Blues.

Kjartansson’s portrait takes its place in a century-long history of reverence for and exploitation of black musicians. For this work, Kjartansson was interested in the reconciliation of Perkins’s on-stage persona with his private self. Frail and often disoriented, Perkins repeats songs and statements creating an unmediated loop, fashioning a dual portrait of an elderly man toward the end of his life, and a historically important musician, who is the keeper of a disappearing tradition.

The Man will be screened at Bíó Paradís on November 4th @ 16:30

CONNECTING STORYTELLERS WITH PEOPLE WORDWIDE


gusgus-market

New global video platforms make it easier than ever before to share your stories and creations with the world. Making a living from that is a different story. What if there was an easy way for creators and artists to connect to their fans all over the world and an easy way for fans to support and give back to their favourite storytellers.

In this session OZ will introduce tools that make this possible as well case studies on how artists are using these tools to make a living.

After the presentation we will have a open discussion on how new opportunities can be created.

Hosted by OZ @ OZ HQ, Skálholtsstígur 7 on November 4th @ 16:30
