FREE Personal Finance Management Seminar for Artists and Musicians

The Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy and OFW UsapangPiso Forum have found an advocacy partner in the Heart of Music Foundation headed by the legendary “Manila Girl” and Queen of Philippine Ska music Myra Ruaro, more popularly known in the local music scene as Skarlet Brown of the famed alternative/ska bands Put3Ska and Brownbeat All Stars.

Heart of Music is an NGO that seeks to secure and protect the health and livelihoods of local musicians. Skarlet is joined in this advocacy by another passionate jazz music artist and editor/writer Gou de Jesus.

On October 26, 2013 at 3pm, these heroes will conduct a FREE financial learning event for our fellow artists and musicians based in the Philippines. This will be held at the 70’s Bistro located in Anonas Street, Project 2 in Quezon City. Continue reading FREE Personal Finance Management Seminar for Artists and Musicians
