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 one-day workshop helps creative freelancers and small arts organisations 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.
For more than a decade Monica Davidson has been helping creative people from all practices and professional stages figure out the basics of financial literacy, with the help of jokes, anecdotes and pictures. This surprisingly fun and informal workshop will leave participants feeling more confident about their financial situation, and provide an opportunity to ask all the questions they’ve always wanted to know. Watch Monica in action here.
All participants at the Money presentation receive a workbook stuffed full of extra resources and exercises in both printed and PDF form, a link to a bespoke website with links and notes, and a chance to network with other people just like them.
