The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is offering a program to help artists tackle their finances. The program originates from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
It’s called “Assets for Artists” and it will not only show artists how to manage their money but also give low-income artists with dreams of entrepreneurship up to $2,000 in a matched savings grant to invest in their business. Participating artists will attend a boot camp focused on personal finance, then take business planning classes. MassMOCA has been running the “Assets for Artists” program since 2008, and is bringing it to Rhode Island, Portland, ME and New York City. Artists have until March 22nd to apply.
