Freelancers, we know how easy it is to get swept up in the hustle, but don’t forget to make time for your own professional development.
On April 5 & 6, Xpace Cultural Centre (2-303 Lansdowne Ave) is hosting Live Your Best Freelance Life, a two-day conference aimed at giving you tools to better prepare your freelance projects. You’ll learn how to navigate legal matters as an artist/curator, grant writing for BIPOC artists, contract literacy, bookkeeping for creatives, self-representation in the arts and more. Panelists include Anique J. Jordan, Rajni Perera, Elissa Pendergast (CARFAC), Max Rothwell (Artists Legal Advice Services), April Aliermo, Diana Bahr, Heidi Cho, Curtia Wright, Chason Yeboah, Kendra Yee. Plus, there’ll be a pop-up exhibit featuring works by creators who are part of the WE-HUB (women entrepreneurship hub).
