Intellectual Property and Artist Legal Rights

Intellectual Property and Artist Legal Rights

October 18, 2023

Facilitated by Max from Artists’ Legal Advice Services


This workshop explored the ways in which the artists can protect their legal rights and work from a place of informed self-advocacy. Max walked the artists through various legal terms and gave them checklists for a bill of sale agreement, exhibition agreements, and private commission contracts.
