A free online training and networking session, as part of Metal New Artist Network.
Sorting Your Freelance Artist Finances
Hosted by guest speaker Remi Harris.
Thursday 12 November, 7pm – 8.30pm on Zoom.
A colourful overview of sorting your freelance artist finances. Even if you find money, tax and accounts confusing, scary or dull, this session will give you the confidence to approach your finances positively and will answer questions like: ‘Why do I need a business bank account?’, ‘Am I going to get a big tax bill if I go self-employed’? and ‘What things can artists claim as business expenses’?.
The workshop includes 30 minutes of networking where you get the chance to meet other early career artists, ask questions and share experiences.

Early career artists can include:
● those who are aged 18+ in their 1st to 4th year of creative practice, post-student status (if applicable)
● those who left school and did not enter Higher Education but still keep up a regular creative practice
● those who have recently graduated in the past three years
● those who have entered the arts later in life after pursuing a different occupation and are within the first four years of this.
