Starving Artist - art, money, freelancing, and how to live creatively
About This Show
Starving Artist is a podcast about art, money, and how to combine those things. If you’re a creative who’s ever wondered “how the hell do I make this work?!” then this podcast is for you. The show is basically an excuse for host and honesty enthusiast Honor Eastly to ask successful artists really nosy questions about their financial situation, and record the conversation.
This is a no-holds-barred exploration of the reality behind the Starving Artist myth, and season one features 12 interviews with some of Australia's most incisive young artists including Frances Cannon, Becky Sui Zhen, Abbey Rich, Wendy Syfret (i-D / VICE) and Steve Roggenbuck. The podcast takes us behind the curtain and into the machine room of contemporary artists, taking on everything from how to make a living from Instagram, how to negotiate a raise in the arts, to how to get out of your private freelancer tax shame.

Ep11: Taking Control Of Your Finances with Sarah Firth
This week we’ve got the second part of the interview I did with Sarah Firth, and this one is some straight up #realtalk about how money works. The first five minutes we talk about maneuvering in your creative career, the next five, Sarah gives me the low down on her best resources for getting in control of your money, and then the following 40 minutes is some down the line truths about financial literacy. Things like how to get interested in money, how to work out how much to charge for your work, how to make a budget, and why you should absolutely definitely look at your finances, even if it means breaking your own heart in the process.
