Money in the Arts: Pathways to Equity

As artists and art professionals, we don’t come together enough to talk about money. Money in the Arts: Pathways to Equity, offers practices and conversations where we, as practitioners dedicated to equity, can address some of the underlying obstacles to our collective financial empowerment. This series offers supportive environments and an embodied framework. We will free our voices and minds to self-advocate. We will talk about creative, equitable approaches to compensation, financial decisionmaking, and budgeting.
