Growing Up: Legal Issues for Expanding Creative Practices | 11am – 1pm

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 your state or territory. We’ll give you some guidance about business structuring and insurance, where to find the templates you will need and how to get legal and business advice.

Collaborate or Bust: Creating Together | 2:30pm – 4:30pm

Working with other creatives can mean sharing your space, your ideas and your copyright. This workshop explores creating and owning copyright jointly, incorporating a collaborative group, and some of the opportunities and responsibilities when collaborating with other artists. This workshop is for you if you’d like to update your knowledge for a more sustainable arts practice and get a clearer understanding of the legal frameworks behind collaborative processes or projects.
