City of Sydney and Arts Law Workshops

The City of Sydney has been working with Arts Law to present a series of workshops around different legal issues that can be faced by artists and creative enterprises.

Each workshop is 1.5 hours and is free to attend. They will focus on different legal issues faced by artists and creatives.  You can attend one or more of the workshops but you will need to register for each individually.

They will be held at 107 Projects, Redfern on Friday 17 June 2016.

  • 9:00am – 10:30am, Copyright 101 for artists

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.

  • 11:00am – 12:30pm, Dotting the i’s: understanding arts contracts

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.

  • 1:30pm – 3:00pm, Arty business

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.

Arts Law will also offer a 1:1 advice clinic on Thursday 7 July at 107 Projects, Redfern. This would be of use if you have a particular legal matter that may not be covered in one of the three workshops. To book an advice consultation contact with the subject “Arts Law advice clinic”.  Advice consultations are for 45 minutes. Spaces are limited.
