Artist Contracts

Tuesday 19 March | 6pm - 9pm | Ards Arts Centre


Are you prepared for when something goes wrong?

In their professional lives, artists enter into many contracts: they sell their works; They provide services to organisations; they are commissioned to produce new works; they exhibit in galleries; they give permission to reproduce their works for various purposes.

All of these activities involve entering into contracts. In fact, virtually all professional dealings of the artist will involve the question of contract. And when something goes wrong in those dealings, and the artist seeks advice, the first issue that must be addressed is; “Was there a valid contract?”
