Build Your Best Budget: Arts Program + Project Planning
We have heard from our community that budgeting can be a bit of a dirty word and, as much as we like our fair share of the dark side of arts business, we want to take the fear and guesswork out of this process.
We're not cutting corners here or claiming a magic shortcut our role is to share the best way to create the most powerful and successful budget for your work. Because, ultimately, that is what you want to be doing, right? Let the budget work for you it can tell your story (with numbers!), illustrate your work to funders, and keep your spending on target so that surprises don't cripple your process or production.
This workshop will give you a clear method for how to build the best budget for your project or program. You will be guided, step-by-step, through the process and the language, with a distinct focus on arts-based work. Rebecca Denk will share her myriad experiences in the world of finance and the arts, bring you from formatting to the bottom line (or two!) and everything in between.
BYOB: Bring your own Budget that is for whatever you're working on and take the opportunity to workshop it in class. Don't worry, you won't be asked to share any specifics you're not comfortable with this is for you!
Note: There is a maximum of 15 attendees grab a seat while you still can!
