Artist Finances: Getting Through the Pandemic and Beyond
This workshop will cover financial essentials for artists, seven months into the shutdown economy. We will focus on managing cash flow, long-term budgeting, planning and financial management, taking into consideration revised income streams and continued uncertainty from the new economic reality. It will also include explanations of new CARES Act legislation and its implications for artists and freelancers. The workshop will include Q&A time and helpful handouts to guide your personal financial decision-making for the end of 2020 and into 2021.
