Retirement Savings for Artists

with Christina Empedocles, Insight Personal Finance

In this 2-hour workshop we’ll cover all the different tax-advantaged account options that allow independent artists and freelancers to save and invest for retirement and lower their taxes. We’ll also cover simple, low-cost, efficient investment strategies to use once your account has been funded. We’ll leave plenty of time for Q&A, so be sure to bring your questions!
This workshop will be presented via Zoom. A recording will be shared for a limited time with registrants.
For more tools and resources for freelance artists and creatives, join us on November 12 for Build Your Own Benefits Package with Brunch & Budget!


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.
