Visual Artists Ireland will offer a workshop on Understanding your Accounts with Gaby Smyth, in association with Limerick City Gallery of Art and Limerick City Council on Monday 27th April at Istrabraq Hall, in City Hall, Merchant’s Quay, Limerick. There are 8 places available for the workshop at a cost of E60 or E55 for VAI members. To book email: monica@visualartists.ie For information on Galway and Belfast workshops see: www.visualartists.ie

Understanding your Accounts: Do you know how much you spent on making art last year?  Do you know how much money you made from your practice?  Do you hate the task of keeping financial records and making tax returns?  Do you have difficulty in making sense of the financial aspects of your work?  Participants will come away from this workshop with practical tools for better financial management including an understanding of cash flow, keeping accounts and how best to integrate budgeting and finance into the day-to-day management of their practice.  The workshop has been designed specifically to be relevant to the financial realities faced by artists.

Gaby Smyth is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and is principal of Gaby Smyth & Company, Chartered Accountants & Registered Auditors. The firm has been in practice for almost 15 years, specialising in the music, film and theatre arts. He is currently on the board of the Dublin Theatre Festival and the Dublin International Film Festival, and is chairman of the Irish section of Amnesty International.
