G to G Coaching Session: Tax Preparation for Artists and Freelancers
October 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
SSCAC is thrilled to partner with ILA Creative Studio for their G-to-G Coaching Sessions, in a 3-part series of artist development resource workshops that intend to help close the gap of limited, sustainable business resources, specific to the needs of Black artists.
You were just paid 7K to create an illustration for a major brand…they sent you a W-9…why?
Or picture this, Nike hired you to do a spoken word voiceover in their upcoming commercial, you were paid 5K and forgot to tell Uncle Sam. Yikes!
Better yet, you composed a score for the latest Disney film and were paid 10K, how much of that belongs to you?
We have some insights for you!
During this 3-part series, we will hold space for artists and freelancers to learn and grow in key areas of interest. So much of our time as practicing artists goes into actually creating our wonderful art, but we MUST create time where we learn about the necessary business etiquette.
Each session will be led by coaches and teaching artists who will provide insight on a specific topic, with the intention of assisting Black artists to work toward achieving sustainability in their field.
ILA Creative Studio’s G-to-G Coaching Sessions are an opportunity for professional practicing artists (18+) to have space to learn and grow in their respective fields – led by a mentor or coach that provides specific insights on a specific topic. These sessions help to translate effective ways for Black artists to achieve sustainability in their fields.
First up, “Tax Preparation for Artists and Freelancers”, led by Shana Isom! Where she’ll cover all things tax and financial management.
