This half-day seminar is an excellent opportunity for arts program managers or artistic directors and lawyers to learn more about the trilling but perilous space of employment and festivals in the creative sector.

If you run an arts organisation, you will be amongst your fellow directors, festival organisers, managers and “arts people” all burning with the same sorts of questions. If you are a lawyer, you’ll come away with greater clarity about these issues for your clients and your practice. It’s a great chance for lawyers and arts organisation representatives to network and, importantly, raise funds for Arts Law, your national community legal centre for the arts.

Employment Law session:
Is this person engaged as a contractor or employee? Are they eligible for superannuation? What about workers compensation? And what does that all mean, anyway? What rights do they have and what do I have to do to comply with the law so I don’t get a call from Fair Work, the ATO or worse, a lawyer, on a dark and stormy night? Come along to this workshop, hosted and delivered by Holding Redlich, specialists on these complex areas of law. They will talk us through how to navigate this legal minefield in a sensible, practical way.

Festivals/Events session:
Are you organising, managing or participating in a festival? The legal issues associated with festivals and events can be daunting and cover a wide range of areas of law, including insurance, copyright clearances, licensing and venue agreements. Come along to this session to understand more about how the law works in the festivals space so that potential issues can be detected early, and you (and the festival) come out on the other end, unscathed.

This event is open to both arts administrators and lawyers.
