Getting Out of the Starving Artist Trap

We have a ton of great Continuing Education events lined up during the URTA Auditions & Interviews January and February in New York, Chicago,Ari-Teplitz and San Francisco. You don’t want to miss “Getting Out of the Starving Artist Trap” on Saturday, January 21st at the Crown Plaza in Times Square. Financial expert Ari Teplitz offers welcome advice for the “struggling” artist. You can sign up for all of our events on the Continuing Education page.

Life as an artist is complicated. Dedication to your craft sometimes means making sacrifices that others don’t understand. It can also mean fighting against stereotypes that either aren’t true or don’t need to be. For example, the notion that being an artist means accepting a life of poverty. That shouldn’t be the case, and it doesn’t have to be. Creating a nest egg for yourself has nothing to do with how much money you make and everything to do with the good habits you create. In this interactive workshop, Ari Teplitz, an arts administrator turned financial advisor, will explore the different ways you can help yourself get out of the starving artist trap with easy, straightforward tips for living a more full financial life.
