Generator's Financial Literacy program returns for a third year! This 8 week program teaches the basics of financial literacy in the arts, led by Kristina Lemieux, Natasha Mytnowych and Audrey Quinn in downtown Toronto.

From budget basics to payroll, you'll get accounting and bookkeeping know-how, as well as access to practical tools. In addition to the course work, each registrant will receive up to 4 hours of one-on-one time and access to the ongoing Financial Joy Office Hours (monthly from September to June). Spots are limited - 12 participants only!

Are you an independent artist, small ad hoc collective or non-profit interested in learning more about project accounting? Or an aspiring Artistic Director wanting to make sure you understand all the elements of running a company? Learn the theory, gain the skills, and build tangible tools over 24 hours of training with Generator. In addition to building a financial system specific to your project/company capacity and needs, you will learn the fundamentals of financial management and gain the confidence to expand those systems as your company and career grows over time. Participants must attend all sessions.

We recommend you reach out to Generator’s Lead Producer, Kristina Lemieux ( prior to registering - please let her know what sorts of projects you are (or hope to be) managing the finances of, and how you think this program will apply. Please also contact Kristina if you would like to participate in the program remotely! In-person participants are asked to bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets to each session.

"Generator’s financial literacy course is an excellent tool and platform to bridge the gap between academic education and/or self-taught producing experience to producing and working professionally. All the educators are very knowledgeable and generous in tailoring their knowledge and experiences to the group’s individual projects and goals. When I started Generator’s Financial Literacy program, I was new to my job as fu-GEN Theatre’s administrator. The course has armed me with greater confidence and efficiency in approaching my job." - Deborah Lim, 2019 Financial Literacy Participant
