The starving artist is a pervasive idea, and in reality lots of creative people struggle in self-employment because money is a constant battle. This isn’t always just due to lack of funds, however – creative practitioners sometimes just need the basics of business money and financial literacy explained in a way that makes sense.
This down-to-earth workshop helps creative freelancers and arts businesses practitioners to answer some of the biggest financial questions they might have:
- How do I weather the ups and downs of creative income?
- How do I make more money?
- Do I have to keep working for free?
- What should I charge?
- How do we manage our spending?
- What’s the deal with tax anyway?
- Where can I go for help?
Money is tailored specifically to creative people who are (or want to be) self-employed, and the activities are relevant no matter what your profession – filmmakers, writers, designers, visual artists, performers. Anyone can benefit from learning more about how to strategise to get what they want from creative business.
