Slate Workshop: The Freelancer’s Toolkit - Newcastle, Sat 14 Sept

Sat 14 Sept, 1 - 4pm
Live Theatre, Newcastle

In this workshop, Slate Enabler Adam Lowe invites attendees to think again about all the things artists are too embarrassed to ask about: day rates, invoicing, late payments, pensions, unions and tax returns. We’ll be offering solutions, navigating best practice and highlighting red flags when you’re self-employed.

As this is a workshop, we’ll be discussing our own processes and what works and doesn’t work. We’ll consider ways to improve and streamline how we manage ourselves as a business. Adam will also signpost useful tools and resources for all attendees.

Entry is free for Black* artists from the North but please complete this form to register your interest in attending by Tues 10 Sept.

Bring with you any problems you’d like to troubleshoot and be prepared to do some research (phone with internet, tablet or laptop required; wifi is available).

*To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalized for their race or ethnicity.
