Abstract

The authors of this paper apply the concepts of social entrepreneurship and capacity building to their research with Australian show people. They also draw on that research to examine the topics of school- community links and university-community links that are significant in fostering rural education and to which the show people contribute particular understandings. The authors argue that the concepts are useful in illustrating many of the problems and possibilities of understanding education as development in regional and rural communities in Australia and overseas.
