Being a working artist can often mean your income is sporadic. But there are ways to stretch your arts practice so that your artwork and your income are not mutually exclusive.

Here are four ways to monetise your existing art skills:

0:29 - Get creative about creativity 
1:28 - Get serious about that side hustle 
2:50 - Get networking and collaborating 
3:55 - Get working with community and government
