In this workshop, Slate Enabler Adam Lowe invites attendees to think again about all the things artists are too embarrassed to ask about: day rates, invoicing, late payments, pensions, unions and tax returns. We’ll be offering solutions, navigating best practice and highlighting red flags when you’re self-employed. Throughout the workshop we will discuss our own ways of doing things, looking at what works well and what needs to change. We’ll consider ways to improve and streamline how we manage ourselves as a business. Adam will also signpost useful tools and resources for all attendees.
Bring with you any problems you’d like to troubleshoot and be prepared to do some research (phone with internet, tablet or laptop required; wifi is available).
Drop Adam a line if you’d like to discuss the workshop beforehand. You can reach him at email@example.com
