Financial Literacy for Artists: Esther Robinson


This Filmmaker Magazine article about having day jobs is the latest in Esther Robinson’s efforts to bring financial literacy to artists and filmmakers. Robinson has founded ArtHome, going beyond grantmaking towards deep, sustainable ways of relating to money to support artmaking. If filmmaking and artmaking are supposedly glamorous fields well-known for high-risk speculation and for trading on myths of penniless, starving geniuses, Robinson’s project is to ground artists in dealing well with money, encouraging and advising on home ownership and the responsible use of credit.
