Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact
Upcoming Workshops



Financial Literacy and Money Consciousness for Artists

The City of San Jose - Office of Cultural Affairs hosts a free workshop to help reduce the “fear factor” that artists struggle with when dealing with their money management concerns. Yesenia Sanchez will help participants understand general financial terminology as it relates to their art practice and personal finances.


Planning for Your Future as an Arts Worker
