Bow Skills Workshop: reframing finances and managing your money as an artist with Sally Moussawi

Wednesday 8th November 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm

This workshop is now sold out. Please email nunnery@bowarts.com if you would like to be added to the waitlist.

Build your financial literacy and management skills in this interactive workshop with Sally Moussawi, centring on how artists and practitioners can embed more reflective thinking and ethical principles into their approaches to their finances. 

Are you an artist, organiser, or part of a community group or small project and are interested in solidarity economy approaches to finance and anti-oppressive ways to reframe our relationship to money?  

Join us for this financial literacy workshop with Sally Moussawi to build fundamental financial skills and knowledges that artists can practically apply directly to their working practices, which also service and act in accordance with our personal values and goals. 

We will learn about  

  • The different barriers to financial literacy  
  • How to read and write budgets as a site of setting intentions  
  • How to read and write a cashflow forecast – both these financial documents are often a pre-requisite to accessing funding  

No experience necessary! People of all levels of comfort with finances are welcome to participate. This workshop will be especially beneficial for those structurally under-served (across race, gender, accessibility and migration), with number-phobias and wounds around [not having] money. 

This workshop is now sold out. Please email nunnery@bowarts.com if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
