Independent Arts & Media is in the midst of developing the Dandelion Arts Finance Training Program, a skill-building program designed by, with, and for arts, media, and cultural workers. In partnership with a group of local artists and arts finance/admin workers – Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen of Emerging Arts Professionals, arts finance consultant Jericha Senyak, and San Francisco artist Jason Wyman – we are co-creating a peer-based financial training network and toolkit in service to our community.
As community-based artists and administrators, we see every day how fraught our peers feel when trying to figure out the intersection of their values, their finances, and their art-making. We want the Dandelion Program to genuinely address this struggle and fully meet the needs of our community.
As a Arts, Media and Culture Worker, we want to hear from you!
- Do you (or other artists in your life) ever feel anxious about doing financial work like budgeting, bookkeeping, or taxes?
- Have you ever felt like there’s a lack of resources for learning financial skills aligned to your values?
- Ever wondered who to trust when you have financial questions?
Please submit your responses by Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
As a small incentive, your email will be entered into a drawing where one out of every 20 survey participants will receive a $70 gift card to a local Bay Area merchant of their choice.
Your radical honesty is the cornerstone of Dandelion’s development. Your participation in this survey means everything to us.
