A strong foundation of financial literacy can help support life and artistic goals, such as saving for education or retirement, using debt responsibly and how to operate an arts business. Planning for how your artistic legacy will be managed is also important for artists. Failure to plan how your accumulated creative output will be handled after you pass away can cause your artistic legacy to be lost.

Please join this information session if you or someone you know are interested in financial and legacy planning for artists.
