Art/Work Connections is a monthly series of seminars presented by Life Is Art featuring business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists. This month we are covering a subject that causes many problems for artists, contract negotiation. We know that many artists have gotten ripped off at various times. Many of these situations could be avoided with just simple agreements.

Most artists have no training in legal issues and often struggle in understanding complex contracts. Many artists do things without any sort of contract, opening themselves up to fraud and theft. Come learn how to how to read a contract and create the proper language to safeguard your rights. We will break this down and make it easy for everyone!
