FREE Basic Finance for Artists workshop

From Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Looks most useful:

Artists of all career stages often face the challenge of deciding whether to channel available funds into their next project, current living costs, or their long-term stability. LMCC’s Basic Finance for Artists program addresses these choices and offers resources to artists who are interested in learning more.

Designed especially for artists, Basic Finance for Artists is a free, concentrated, six-week series of workshops that will help develop financial awareness and balance through practical training in money management. The program takes into consideration the complexity of artists’ income flow and diversity of artistic practices. Workshops provide a combination of seminar-style learning and hands-on group and individual exercises. Experts in the field and guest artists help lead the workshops and address issues that are relevant to artists’ needs.

Artists who participate in this series of workshops will gain a better understanding of their financial profiles, specific goals, and contacts with business and arts professionals. Participants will also receive a resource guide that will provide exercises, reference materials, and useful tips to continue to develop their skills.

Deadline for registration is April 20, 2009. Workshop is free but space is extremely limited.
