Law for Creatives Workshop Series


WHEN: 10am–12pm 30 Oct 2015 – 13 Nov 2015


Three Friday morning workshops presented by Arts Law focusing on different legal issues for artists followed by a bookable advice clinic with limited one-to-one consultations.

Workshop 1 – Friday 30 October

Copyright and your creative practice: making it work for you.

Creating art often means creating copyright. Let us walk you through owning and using your copyright, as well as creating copyright with other people. We’ll talk about what happens if someone uses your copyright without your permission, and how to get permission if you’d like to use someone else’s work.

Workshop 2 – Friday 6 November

Dotting the i’s: understanding arts contracts

Artists often 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.

Workshop 3 – Friday 13 November

Growing up: legal issues for expanding creative practices

Being an artist often means being a business. In this session, we look at some of the issues involved in engaging other creatives in your growing business (contracting and employing) and your legal responsibilities when doing business in NSW.
