The business side of a creative career can be difficult to manage. But if you’re a CMG Freelance member in Toronto, there’s an upcoming weekend workshop on business skills for self-employed artists that will help. The workshop is scheduled for Friday, June 12th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at OCAD University.

The weekend-long seminar is being offered by Artists’ Health Alliance in partnership with AFBS.  Registration is currently limited to the membership of organizations who are part of the AFBS Writers’ Coalition Program. The workshop registration fee is only $50 — for a workshop that the Artists’ Health Alliance says is worth $350.

Artists’ Health Alliance’s Meg Moran says the seminar was inspired by a recent survey of artists in the GTA which revealed that most artists experience challenges when it comes to managing the business side of their careers. 

“This seminar is the perfect opportunity to help artists bolster their knowledge, skills and confidence and learn the essentials needed to support their passion,” she says.

 The seminar facilitator is Jack Cunningham, a Career and Employment Consultant, Curriculum Designer, Educator and Artist.
