Contracts for Creatives
How does having a solid contract makes for a stable partnerships? Artists may ask:
- What even goes in a contract?
- Does it cover my intellectual property?
- I'm just an artist, not a lawyer, and I'd rather just make good art.
In a sales process, we might call those objections. Contracts often feel stuffy, can feel exploitive, and can feel very outside of the creativity and give and take of a creative process. The good news is that a good contract helps you stay in good relationship with those you do business with, and, if it's working right, be simple.
Presented by a working artist who isn't an attorney, you'll leave this workshop with information about what a contract is for, what it can include, what you might most want in yours, and tips on when - and how - to seek legal advice.
