Copyright 101 for artists
9am – 10.30am

Creating art often means creating copyright. Let us walk you through owning and using your copyright, as well as creating copyright with other people. This session uses practical examples, case studies from artists’ experiences and hypothetical scenarios to help make copyright accessible and, dare we say, fun for creatives.

Dotting the i’s: understanding arts contracts
11am – 12.30pm

Artists sometimes enter into contracts without being completely sure what it all means for them. This session will take you through what a contract is, and some of the key issues artists often deal with when negotiating arts contracts.

Arty business
1.30pm – 3pm

Being an artist often means being a business. In this session, we look at business names and structuring and identify some of the legal issues that come up when you are working with other creators.
