WORKSHOP: Negotiating Contracts for Digital Artists

WORKSHOP: Negotiating Contracts for Digital Artists

Thursday, August 25, 2022
13:00_15:00 Montréal time

Agora du Cœur des sciences

15-60$

(taxes and fees included)

What is the difference between an exhibition contract, a performance contract, and a distribution contract? What about an exclusive license as compared to a non-exclusive one? What are typical contracting terms and what should you, as an artist, be looking out for to best protect your creative work?

This workshop is aimed at digital artists and creatives who would like to gain practical experience in negotiating contracts. Eliane Ellbogen (intellectual property lawyer and founder / former director of digital art centre Eastern Bloc) will lay out the basic principles of contract law, explore the most common types of contracts used in the artistic and creative industries, and guide workshop participants in a simulated contract negotiation.
