Designed and led by a working artist with expertise in bookkeeping, budgeting, tax preparation, and financial management, this workshop will raise participants’ level of financial literacy regardless of their prior experience. The workshop is appropriate for individual artists working in any genre and at any point in their careers. Topics will include individual taxes for artists, segregating personal and artistic finances, budgeting for your life and your artistic projects (how to translate artistic narrative into line item budgets for funders), tips for tracking deductible expenses (what can artists write off?), how artists can get out of debt and start saving, a self-employment primer (answering the question “what’s my time worth?”), and whether and when to pursue forming a non-profit incorporation or other entity. Participants will leave the workshop with better financial management and planning skills, as well as a variety of useful tips, tools, and worksheets.
