Professional Development Opportunities for Arts Organisations

We all know that the greatest investment in an organisation is to invest in our people. Arts Law has noticed a trend in arts organisations wanting to implement law-focused professional development training for their staff. We can provide targeted, helpful education to your staff to develop their legal understanding of artists’ rights and help you work towards best practice for your sector.

Arts Law professional development sessions can include training on contracts, insurance and liability basics, governance training, copyright for arts workers, working with Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property and more. We will work with you to ensure training is directed by your needs as an organisation.

An Arts Law lawyer can come to you and deliver education face to face as a series of workshops, an intensive day covering a number of topics or as a single session. We can also deliver online webinars. It all depends on the needs of your organisation, what you’d like to cover and your budget.

Some examples of our professional development sessions include:

  • Contemporary arts space sessions focusing on marketing and social media; understanding copyright and contracts and common artist agreement terms including for loans and commissioning agreements.
  • Rights management workshops for peak bodies enabling them to advocate for and understand key issues faced by artists in their sector.
  • Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property training for non-Indigenous arts organisations wishing to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in a legal and ethical environment.
