WORKSHOPS

Current Workshops

 

Some people offer sessions or seminars, we offer WORKshops: please come prepared to work as these are interactive, informative sessions in an intimate setting centred around you, your artistic practice and current projects (or ideas for projects). These are skills working arts makers need to develop at a price point that respects their budgets. 

All workshops only $20.

PRODUCING A SHOW FROM YOUR OWN BANK ACCOUNT

January 11, 6:30-9:30pm


The "Return" (get the tax joke?) of this incredibly popular workshop - 100% of participants recommend it and say it is money well spent and a STEAL OF A DEAL.

You got the grant, you booked the Festival, the show is happening, you deposit your cheque...now what? Many independent artists use their personal bank accounts for art projects without really knowing what we are doing or what risks we are exposing ourselves to. Generator's Financial Administrator and artists' tax preparer Tova Epp will take you through the things you really need to know and common mistakes:

  • Self-employment vs. personal expenses
  • Keeping track of project expenses and what is tax deductible
  • Claiming individual grants on your income tax
  • HST and government filings

This workshop fills up quick so don't wait till the new year to reserve your spot! CLICK HERE to register.

MORE WORKSHOPS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN EARLY JANUARY - stay tuned!
