About the Program

From budgeting basics to HST, this program uses theory and practical tools to teach the fundamentals of financial management for creatives. Over 14 hours of training with Generator, you’ll develop skills in financial planning and basic project accounting, build a financial system specific to your capacity and needs, and gain the confidence to expand those systems as your career grows over time.

The program is taught by Kristina Lemieux, Audrey Quinn, and Natasha Mytnowych. Instructors will be available for thirty minutes before each class to answer any questions. In addition, all participants will have access to four hours of one-on-one financial coaching, and monthly drop-in Financial Joy office hours (September-June).

Financial Literacy will be delivered over Zoom. Access to Google Sheets and/or Microsoft Excel is required.

Jordan Mechano Bursary for Financial Literacy

One name will be drawn on September 20, 2021 at 1:00PM ET. This individual will be awarded a bursary of $150 to cover the cost of program participation. All registrants who entered the lottery will be notified of results within 24 hours of the draw. This bursary honours the legacy of Jordan Mechano, an actor, writer, live performance artist, and valuable member of the Toronto Theatre community.
