When it comes to being an independent artist, you likely received no training on how to be a small business owner. Yet the reality is that you are the CEO of your own brand – as the CEO, you have to make all of the important business decisions. You live with the consequences of those choices, but there are tools available to help you succeed.
This workshop aims to help artists of all disciplines learn the practical skills needed to run an art business.
Common contract clauses and their pitfalls, and important issues for creatives including ownership rights, credits, milestone management, copyright protection, control, legal liability, and planning for the unexpected.
We will use contracts as a focal point to show you what to do in these two common scenarios: 1) you’re handed a contract to sign that you don’t understand, and 2) you are working with others and need to clarify and set the basic framework for the collaboration.
Who this workshop is for:
Whether you are a musician, writer, performing artist, visual artist, or anyone else in the creative industry, you’ll come away from this workshop better equipped to make a living doing what you love!
