Collective & Cooperative Business Models (WAITLIST ONLY)

How do you organize and execute a collaborative business plan? What are the steps that artists and cultural producers need to know about? Crafting a plan and generating funds for cooperative business plans can be mystifying. This workshop will provide examples of past and current long and short term projects, houses, cooperative spaces, businesses and pop-ups. 


Tax Tips for Artists

When it comes to taxes, artists have unique needs and benefits. As both a tax preparer and a working actor, Emily Churchill, EA, specializes in the concerns that are unique to creative workers. In this workshop, artists and creatives of all backgrounds will learn best practices and important take-aways about the current tax code in a friendly and confidential setting.

Business Entities for Creative Entrepreneurs

B-Corps, (c)(3)s, LLCs and more... Artists and creative entrepreneurs have a host of options these days when it comes to selecting a business entity, but many may not be aware of some less traditional options such as cooperatives, fiscal sponsorship, unincorporated associations, and benefit corporations. Join Casey Summar for a workshop on how to choose the right business entity for your artistic practice.
