Exciting New Cultural and Artistic Endeavors Planned for WV

Updated 1 year ago Edited from a Press Release

The Tamarack Foundation for the Arts is gathering data to create a snapshot of the state of the West Virginia creative economy.

Independently, artists' stories may be taken as simple anecdotes, but when taken together, can illuminate powerful trends that lead to action and change.

It is important that your voice is heard. We want to be mindful of the value of your time, so we've limited the questions to 19 - about five minutes to complete.  While your responses will remain confidential, the collective results of this brief survey will be published to all West Virginians and used to advocate for stronger programs that will help shape your business. Please join us in helping to build the creative economy of West Virginia by completing the following survey.

Your privacy is important to us. We will never share your information to anyone or any outside party without your approval.

Part 1: Financial Wellness – July 17, 11:30 am – 12:45 pm ET
Having complete creative freedom means you never have to say yes to something you’d rather refuse, just for the money. And if you are financially empowered, you can do just that. In this kick-off webinar, the first of a three-part series, we’ll unpack the definition of financial empowerment, identify the five financial
metrics you should pay close attention to, and review actionable steps you can take to boost your own financial wellness.

Part 2: Budgeting – August 14, 11:30 am – 12:45 pm ET
Being informed, intentional, and mindful about your finances is the best route to empowerment. (And budgeting is the best route to being informed, intentional, and mindful about your money.) So where to begin? There are five steps to the budgeting process, and we’ll walk through them all in detail, including a few key points to make the process easier along the way. You’ll leave with a budget you can make your own, ready to connect it to your goals.

Part 3: Portfolio Careers – September 11, 11:30 am – 12:45 pm ET
“I just need more money” isn’t a business plan, even though it can seem like the simplest solution to financial woes. In this webinar, the third of the three-part series, we’ll review the portfolio career framework to match your own strengths with opportunities to monetize those strengths. After all, diversifying your income—that is, earning income from a variety of activities—can protect your earning strategy throughout the year.
