 Financial Literacy for Artists

  • Groundswell Community Mural Project 540 President Street, #1A Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Title of Event:

Description: Mark your calendars for March 9th, when we will be joined in the Groundswell Studio by Amy Smith, an artist, educator, and activist with 20 years of experience doing accounting and financial management in the for-profit and non-profit worlds. With tax season upon us, Amy will be deep-diving into taxes for creatives, as well as budgeting, valuing your time, negotiating for fair pay, and credit, debt and long term saving. As artists, we are all running our own small business, so money management is a must!
