Financial Management for Artists

Facilitated by Lydia Talajic


Monday, May 2nd




A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants.


Let's deconstruct something that scares most artists - money. Knowing where to start when it comes to being on top of your finances as an artist can be overwhelming. But don't panic! Staying on top of your finances as a contractor doesn't have to be complicated, and it can even be fun! Join us to learn about the key differences between being your own boss and working for someone else from a finance point of view. We will discuss deductions, what is deductible on taxes, and even how to do your own taxes!
