Abstract

The research literature suggests that arts-based development, and rural entrepreneurship, have the potential to strengthen interactional networks that foster civic engagement, sense of community, entrepreneurship, and creative transformation. Arts business incubators, festivals, and community arts venues also present opportunities to enable collaborative network interactions that can build community capacity and support an inclusive community field. This article reviews research and case study literature to present a preliminary conceptual framework for considering the conditions that facilitate community-embedded arts-based development in rural areas—sparking a creative fire. These conditions are categorized under the community creative context, the entrepreneurial context, and the network/interactional context.
