Participation in the Arts Stage 3


Participation in the Arts - Stage 3
Featuring Kim Griffin and Mathew Stone of Stone-Olafson

Date: Wednesday, December 2, 2020
Time: 1:00 - 2:00pm
It seems like every artist and organization in Edmonton wants to know when people will be ready to step back into in-person events and experiences. We can't predict the future, but since March, Stone-Olafson have been carefully tracking Albertans' evolving attitudes towards the pandemic.  With this session, they present their findings on the fall, with a special focus on what this might tell us about the winter ahead. To register for this free session, email grants@edmontonarts.ca.


How Much - Determining a Price for Your Work

How Much? Determining a Price for Your Work
Featuring Bill Samoil and Bob Rasko

Date: Tuesday, December 15, 2020
Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm

Setting a price for your art - whether that's a professional service, a performance, a painting or a chalk drawing - is one of the most complex and important calculations an artist can make. Financial whiz Bill Samoil walks you through the calculations required to adequately cover your costs, and impresario Bob Rasko helps explore the psychology and dynamics of price negotiations. If you've ever wondered if you're charging too little - or worried that you're charging too much - join us for this conversation. To register for this free online workshop, email grants@edmontonarts.ca.
