Art Biz: Financial Wellness for Artists

Monday, 11/30/2020



Building healthy financial habits can be a challenge for anyone… And in the arts, we have the added complication of managing cash flow, measuring success in creative and financial terms, and relying on sometimes uncertain sources of income. Plus, we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. That complicates things.

In this interactive, hands-on workshop, we’ll cover healthy approaches to identify realistic business and personal expenses, strategize to build wealth through savings, and plan for tax obligations effectively. The framework for addressing these things revolves around building knowledge, establishing habits (and holding ourselves accountable for those habits), reclaiming control where we can, and knowing what to pay attention to.


As part of this webinar, we will:

-Review a framework for quantifying expenses.

-Highlight key metrics to pay attention to.

-List strategies to make more intentional financial choices.

RSVP required. Zoom details will be sent via confirmation email.
