Budgeting & Banking for Artists Navigating the Unknown with Debt-Free Denae

Thursday Jun 4th, 2020

Join us for a webinar about financial literacy for artists.

Erie Arts & Culture is committed to growing the capacity of our region's creative and cultural professionals. As an agency, we identified financial literacy, the knowledge necessary to make important financial decisions, as one of the key topics that we wish to advance through ongoing educational workshops and webinars. Financial literacy is important because it equips us with a greater understanding of how to manage money effectively. Education in this area builds a foundation for recognizing how our financial decisions and the actions we take—or don't take—impact our current and future success and abilities to achieve our goals.

Tips and Resources for Reopening Safely | Pennsylvania Council on the Arts

Wednesday Jun 3rd, 2020

As counties in Pennsylvania transition to "green" in June, many creative and cultural organizations are both eager and apprehensive to reopen. During these unprecedented times, Erie Arts & Culture understands those feelings. One way we aim to assist is by providing resources and educational support for our creative and cultural organizations, both large and small.

On June 1, 2020, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts published "Reopening Safely: Tips and Resources to Prepare," a document that outlines best practices for reopening. Though some counties in PA remain in the yellow phase, this resource aims to help you strategically plan ahead for reopening.
