Stop Starving: How Creatives Get Paid

  • Adobe 104 Fifth Ave, 4th Floor New York, NY 10011 USA (map)

Why is it so damn hard for creative people to talk about money?

For those of us who do creative work, it can be particularly difficult to price ourselves—let alone talk about money openly. For many creatives, it's stressful just making ends meet. So join us for a roundtable where we'll discuss all that and more. Whether you do creative work for a living or have a secret desire to work in an artsy field, this event is a must-attend. 


Key takeaways:

  • Defining/defying titles: what does it mean to be a "creative"?
  • Balance between artistry and commercial work: what is "selling out"?
  • The exposure vortex: when is okay to work for free and/or trade vs. getting paid? 
  • How to raise our prices fairly while remaining competitive?
