Hey artists… find it hard to talk about money? Especially when you really need to – when negotiating a contract? This is the workshop for you!

Whether you’re sweating your first freelance agreement or looking to sign with a studio, it’s time to conquer your fear of taxes, deductibles and getting paid what you’re worth. Come talk about spreadsheets, and how to get started negotiating!

This is a hands-on workshop. You’ll learn how to fill in provided spreadsheets, pick up some easy techniques you can apply right away, and get personalized feedback from the instructor. Who this workshop is for

Artists and freelancers on the intermediate-senior side of contract work.

About the instructor Alex Leitch is a technologist and software developer living in Toronto, Canada, where they run a tech consultancy – – and design interactive installation artworks. They specialize in technology as a team sport, and teach a number of classes on that topic at OCADu.
