Creative Freelancing

with Heather Parry

This performance has taken place in the past

How do you operate as a creative freelancer? What are your rights, and how do you protect them? What happens when things go wrong, like late payment or a dispute with an employer? How the heck do you do your taxes?

Join Heather Parry, the co-creator of the Illustrated Freelancer’s Guide, for a practical and supportive workshop on navigating your career in the creative arts as a sole trader. With a focus on easily understandable help and simple guidance, this workshop will cover:

1) the basics of operating as a creative freelancer
2) maintaining your sanity + advocating for your rights
3) a Q&A to discuss anything at all

Learn how to advocate for yourself and your peers from the start of your career onwards – and how to make the scary stuff less scary!
