This two-hour class (with handouts + practical exercises + Q&A!) is created to give you a basic, crucial grounding in the financial aspects of being “in business” as a creative, artist, and cultural worker.

This workshop will take place in the Flux Factory office which is up a flight of stairs. If you cannot go up stairs, email and we can move the event into the gallery.

The workshop will cover:

1) What is a small business – as an artist, am I one?

2) Making the Money: reality of getting paid for gigs

3) debrief / exercise

4) Four steps to legitimize and track the money in and out

5) Make it easier by managing the pieces: contracts, automation, planning
