CONTRACTS (FOR ARTISTS) Workshop

Understanding your contract gives you the power to negotiate a better deal or get out of a bad contract. This session takes you through how to make and negotiate a contract and some of the key terms to look out for in those agreements. This session is relevant to all creatives and artists across all art forms. We’ll guide you to useful templates and explain how to get legal advice on those.

COPYRIGHT & IP (FOR EVERYONE) Workshop

Creating art means creating copyright. Let us walk you through owning and using your copyright, knowing your moral rights. We’ll also shed some light on the potential pitfalls of putting your copyright and your ideas online – it can go wrong! This session uses practical examples, case studies from artists’ experiences and hypothetical scenarios to help make copyright accessible and easy.

WHEN:            Thursday 9th November, 10am-12pm
WHERE:          Kensington Town Hall, Supper Room

COLLABORATIONS (FOR EVERYONE) Workshop

Working with other creatives can mean sharing your space, your ideas and your copyright. This workshop will explore creating and owning copyright jointly, incorporating a collaborative group, and some of the opportunities and responsibilities that arise when collaborating with other artists - including in cross cultural projects. This workshop is for you if you’d like to update your knowledge for a more sustainable arts practice and get a clearer understanding of the legal frameworks behind collaborative processes or projects.

PRIVACY + DATA LAW: ESSENTIALS FOR ARTISTS AND ARTS ORGANISATIONS

There are many questions that arise when dealing with privacy and data. What are privacy laws and how do we comply with them?

We will focus on these questions from the perspective of both an independent artist and an organisation.

WHEN:            Thursday 9th November 3.30pm-5pm
WHERE:          Kensington Town Hall, Main Hall
