Open public debate at 5 pm



The successful Czech illustrator, street artist, and comic book author Toy_Box will present the basics of financial literacy for illustrators and artists in the form of a masterclass. The lecture is especially tailored for people who want or are trying to make a living with their artistic work. Together with Toy_Box, who is also a member of the Professional Association of Czech Illustrators, you will look at the most common problems that people in the creative professions face. We will deal with pricing, promotion and what a professional illustrator needs in order to be able to make a living with his work.


The workshop, during which participants will have the opportunity to discuss their specific and individual problems they have regarding their art and its appreciation, will be followed by an open debate, where we will look again and in a larger team at the most pressing questions that illustrators and comics creators face regarding getting rewarded for their skills.
