Paradoxes of Success: Money & Meaning in Creative Careers – Lucy Bellwood
December 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
Our culture has never done a great job of talking about money, but we’re entering an era when honest conversations about financial sustainability are vital to the diversification and resilience of our communities. It’s time to get honest about HOW we make money work in creative fields, while also acknowledging that creative work isn’t all about the cash. In this talk, Adventure Cartoonist Lucy Bellwood does both! Part One draws from Lucy’s decade of self-publishing and freelance experience to cover practical methods for financing creative careers, while Part Two explores the contradictions inherent in our personal and cultural blueprints for success. Participants will come away with a high-level overview of financial tools, plus questions that can help keep us connected to the goals and outcomes that make us feel truly nourished by our creative practice when the going gets rough. Expect nitty-gritty details and heart-stirring feels in equal measure.
