The value of economics as a mathematical application is not linked to any system of beliefs, this is an important differentiation that I believe is lost in translation but necessary for an effective and sustainable career in the arts. My goal is to teach people that they can utilize economics in order to create the work they want to be making, rather than minimizing what they are capable of as a result of deficient information about finance and operational management.
Book this one hour lecture for your class, organization or small interest group. The lecture discusses key aspects of economics, operations, and financial management and focuses on optimizing project management. The goal is to help the audience to develop a clear and applicable purpose for economic theory in the arts. Through the demystification of vocabulary to basic formula’s this talk is all about taking the emotions out of the price breakdown and understanding what the work cost the artist to make. From there we develop mathematical equations on how to value time, effort and art. This lecture is the first in a growing series of informative talks on art + business and bringing the two together to support, develop and sustain culture industries globally.
