Graduating from their academic training with honed artistic skills and ripe with talent, artists and cultural workers realize quickly that the business side of being self-employed demands a whole other skillset - and TAMYC is their answer. Since 2002, TAMYC has been providing self-employed artists and cultural workers with the know-how to develop financially viable careers. Written by and for artists, it has been taught in colleges and universities, through professional associations and artists' networks, and used by independent artists and cultural workers for over a decade.

Now CHRC brings its timely advice to your laptops through 5 clear, compelling E-learning courses.

Following the TAMYC guide closely and mirroring its content, the E-learning courses are yet another way to help emerging artists and cultural workers to practise their art and make a living at the same time.

Take advantage of this new learning tool to perfect your business skills, and give your chosen career as a self-employed artist or cultural worker the boost it needs to be financially as well as artistically successful!

Take the courses

For our francophone colleagues - in a break from CHRC's standard practice of producing all its materials in both official languages, the TAMYC E-Learning courses are only in English. This is because steps have been taken in Quebec, through the Conseil québecois des ressources humaines en culture (CQRHC) with support from the government of Quebec, to produce a series of online training modules in French, also based on TAMYC (L'Art de gérer sa carrière). These are available to francophones across the country. For further information, please see
