Arts Workers, Entrepreneurship and Contracts | The Artist Exchange

Seminar Hours: 12:30pm - 2:00pm PT / 2:30pm - 4:00pm CT / 3:30pm - 5:00pm ET 

While contracts might seem intimidating, familiarizing yourself with them is the first best step to protecting you and your work. This webinar will provide an overview of general contract terms and concepts, and discuss when and why you should consider putting together contracts for your production, project, or new venture. We will also explore common contract issues in the entertainment space and discuss what you can do to deal with them.
