I was alerted to this incredible free opportunity by Esther Robinson, founder of ArtHome and filmmaker extraordinaire. Since most of us HAVE used credit cards to fund a project (or even our rent), this is the perfect opportunity to start the steps of reigning in one's financial chaos.
Here's the blurb: Have you used credit cards to fund a project and can’t seem to pay them down? Are you looking for free, objective, one-on-one financial advice? Join the Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Consumer Affairs Office of Financial Empowerment for a day of FREE one-on-one financial counseling and workshops designed to help working artists and arts administrators in all disciplines, as well as independent workers reduce debt and manage credit. Details are here.
It takes place tomorrow, March 6th from between 12-5 pm at the Dwyer Cultural Center. 258 St. Nicholas Avenue (at 123rd Street)
