Description: Following the success of the Legal Roundtable for Visual Artists this past fall, we welcome back Lindsey Wareham (Cox & Palmer), this time to lead a small group of participants through contract law as it applies to visual arts. The direction of this class will be determined in part by the questions submitted in advance by registrants. The format for this session will include an overview of the advance readings, a review of sample engagement agreements for visual artists, and an open question period.

Advance Reading: In order to get the most out of this session, we recommend reviewing An Artist’s Guide to Canadian Contract Basics: Pages 1 to 7 (General Info on Copyright); and pages 23 to 31 (Visual Arts):
