Financial viability for sustaining practice is a critical question facing socially relevant creative practices. This article looks into the potential of arts entrepreneurship as a way to expand practice through alternative economies in a post-growth ethos. Examples from Hong Kong are analyzed with post-growth value propositions. Their strategies of sustenance inform a practice-based experiment that doubled as a pedagogical exercise for advanced art students to continue pursuing socially relevant undertakings after graduation. The experiment shows that new forms of capability building, infrastructural support, and collaborative models of financing are instrumental.
