Arts Council Tokyo implements the Arts Academy program with the aim of discovering and cultivating leaders of arts and culture for the coming age. We are offering a new learning program in accounting/taxation for practitioners in the field of arts and culture. In order to sustain creative activities, knowledge of the money side of things – the funding for activities, payment to people involved, the balance of income and expenditure, handling of related taxes, etc. – is indispensable. Featuring lecturers who are experts in accounting and tax matters in arts and culture, the course offers a five-pronged program designed for self-employed individuals such as artists and producers, and four different types of organization. Each lecture on the course will provide basic knowledge of accounting and taxation, as well as hints for sustainable management of organizations and business. After the lectures, we will also offer individual consultation time.
This is an opportunity to learn effectively within a busy schedule. We look forward to a wide range of participants, from those who feel weak with accounting/taxation, to those aiming to strengthen their footing in managerial skills.
