Money is Not a Dirty Word: A 'Creative Plus Business' Workshop


18 Sep | 2 hours Fringe HQ


Money is the lifeblood of any creative business, but financial literacy can be a real struggle for creatives. Navigating the numbers is not always a happy place, emotions can be overpowering, and who ever learned the basics of business money and financial literacy during their arts training? MONEY IS NOT A DIRTY WORD is a surprisingly fun and practical workshop designed specifically for creative learning styles (with pictures!), that answers some of the big scary financial questions:

Topics covered in depth include:
+ The Famine and the Feast – weathering the ups and downs of creative income;
+ Making financial decisions more easily;
+ The basics of budgets and cash flow projection;
+ Practical steps to getting financially organised;
+ More resources and places to go for help.

What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:
+ Lifetime access to a dedicated Dropbox folder jam packed with resources;
+ Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop;
+ The possibility of further one-to-one business advice, mentoring and support from one of our creative industries business specialist advisors.
All questions are welcome in this relaxed, safe, and inclusive workshop. Participants are also encouraged to share their own experiences and network with their fellow practitioners.
Ideal For: Creative freelancers, established practitioners, emerging arts organisations.
