ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Designed to empower ensembles and small arts organizations, this participatory artist-focused seminar increases attendees' comfort, confidence, comprehension, and competency levels by sharing the basic tools needed to manage the financial "business" of artmaking. It provides an introductory-level overview of the financial components involved in operating an arts organization, including:
-- Planning (chart of accounts, budgeting, cash flow projections);
-- Day-to-day fiscal management (receivables, payables, deposits, bookkeeping, bank reconciliation, financial controls and policies);
-- Reporting (tools for evaluation and review by staff/company members, boards, and external stakeholders, and how to use these tools internally to guide your decision making).
Led by NET Managing Director Alisha Tonsic, the session is designed for a small group, in order to ensure an intimate, comfortable setting and time for personal attention. Participants receive in-class handouts, as well as a take-home USB drive loaded with templates, forms, and resource materials that they can put to use immediately with their companies. In addition, participants receive a one-on-one private consultation to access tailored coaching and direct responses to their specific questions and concerns.
This workshop is part of Ensembles ABCs, a program of the Network of Ensemble Theaters that is designed to provide professional development training and build capacity within ensembles and other small arts organizations. NET is a coalition of America's theater ensembles (www.ensembletheaters.net), preserving the legacy and sustainability of ensemble practice.
This workshop is made possible, in part, through a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) and New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) to allow participants to attend for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional support for this session and the Ensemble ABCs program is provided by lead funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
