Artsadmin staff members have collectively made a donation of £413.12 split between the Exist Loudly Fund and the Black Curriculum to mark this critical moment in the Black Lives Matter movement.

In our e-digest newsletter today, you’ll find links to these funds as well as other anti-racist resources, petitions and links. We’ll continue to gather these; please continue to submit any of your own resources via our e-digest.

These actions are part of our wider anti-racist work. There is much more to do, this is an on-going process and we will keep listening and welcoming your feedback:

The Artsadmin team are working remotely and our Artist Support programmes and free artist advisory service are running digitally.

Take care, from the team at Artsadmin

    C.2) Artsadmin: Radar Sessions

    Covid-19 has severely disrupted the financial situation of so many artists so we're dedicating a week to talking about money and financial advice. We’ve heard from artists that they feel overwhelmed by the reality of their financial situation, and that their fear and anxiety are increasing as this crisis goes on. Being a freelance artist means a lot of the general ‘how to do money’ tutorials don’t line up with our professional reality, especially in a Covid-19 context. So we’d like to help.

    We’re offering two Radar workshops - one about personal finance, another (this one) on professional finance - and sharing guidance and resources for artists on our blog and social media on demystifying financial health and being more mindful about money.

    Wednesday 24th June
    Let's Get Personal
