Contracts help us establish expectations when sharing our work and collaborating with others. A good contract can help you form lucrative partnerships, license your artwork, hire your first employee, negotiate a gig, or publish your book. But contracts can be so hard to understand. What is a “force majeure” clause? Why is “choice of law” important? What does “indemnification” mean, anyway?
Join lawyer Dr. Katherine de Vos Devine to explore the how, when, where, and why of contracts for creative businesses. This presentation will help you understand the elements of a good contract, know when you need a contract, and improve your contract negotiation skills.
The Contracts for Creatives panel discussion is part of the Craft Your Commerce Workshop Series Beyond the Studio: Financials and Operations.
