4:30-6pm The Business of Performing
with Reggie Bugmuncher
Are you a full time or part time entertainer (dance, music, acting)? Perhaps a freelance artist (whether performance is included or not)? There are many things that we learn along the way about self-managing from PR to setting up contracts, but wouldn't it be nice if someone just broke it all down for us? If you are tired of going through the ups and downs of the business of creative freelance work, this workshop is for you!
