Registration is now open for our 3-Day Financial Wellness Program for Independent Artists!
Despite it being such a taboo subject, financial stability plays a major role in an artist's creative life. Whether or not anyone likes to admit it, stress around money can have a huge impact on our work or career opportunities at any given moment.
While many artists have a goal to sustain themselves financially from their creations, few are given the support or education needed to efficiently manage income and expenses as freelancers and business owners. It's difficult to avoid signing that bad deal when you have student loans on your back. It's hard to muster up the strength to keep your creative rights, or even know your value as an artist when your bank account is giving you a contrasting message.
The mission of this program is to equip artists with a new set of tools and financial principles that will keep them in their creative power, allowing greater freedom of expression while operating from a stable financial base.
