This specially devised seminar has been developed in response to demand from arts organisers for legal support around the important area of contracts. Central to all legal and business relationships, whether they be between artists or curators, arts organisations, the private sector, or members of the public, contracts help smooth working relationships and avoid things ending in disaster.

Led by contracts-specialist lawyer Nicholas Sharp, you will learn how contracts can be used to clarify expectations, identify issues that might otherwise be overlooked and reduce the likelihood of future disputes. Artist and arts project manager Joseph Young will support the session with his experience used as a case study to discuss real-life examples.

Examples of contracts to be covered: exhibiting, project management, commissioning, employment and freelance, partnership/collaboration, funding, IT and IP and others.

The session will include an informal networking event, helping you to make connections with peers and begin to nurture future relationships.

Who is the session for?
The event is aimed at cultural producers, project managers, curators and artists who manage arts events, projects and exhibitions.
