Financial Planning for Artists and Creatives

with Christina Empedocles

Co-presented by CCI and Insight Personal Finance.

This workshop will look at the big picture of an artist’s role as CFO of their own lives, and how that translates to the day-to-day best practices of running a small business. We’ll look at an efficient method of managing income, expenses and taxes to build positive growth, and discuss what you could miss out on if you don't take action. The workshop will give you practical tools to use in your own creative practice, as well as the inspiration to get started.


Christina Empedocles, once a full-time art-maker and now a Certified Financial Planner, focuses her practice in part on guiding people in creative industries. She helps artists better manage their finances, with an eye toward sustaining their art practices and their independent lives over the long-term.
