Planning festivals & adapting to a changing landscape
An online workshop to aid Festival Organisers in these challenging times has been organised through Visual Artists Ireland. This training is being provided FREE to festivals/artsvenues within Tipperary. It takes place on 1st September at 11:00am.
Booking through - https://visualartists.ie/professional-development-_/#!event/2020/9/1/onl....
This event is designed to help festival organisers adapt to a rapidly changing world.
Two things in particular have challenged festival organisers: COVID-19 and the rapid adoption of the internet as a platform for delivering a programme.
We will explore the legal aspects of this new landscape so you are in full compliance with legislation and your insurance policy.
We will also look at what questions you will need to consider when thinking about how work is presented online, and how this is reflected in the contracts with your artists.
• Sean Lawlor from EventInsure will talk about what the implications of the new landscape are for your insurance requirements.
• Brenda Tobin will talk about the legal considerations that you may well now be facing. In particular she will focus on what contracts should be in place, and what are the copyright and licensing implications of delivering a programme online.
• Jo Mangan will be talking about what impact these changes are having on the Carlow Arts Festival and how they are adapting.
This event is held in partnership with Co Clare Arts Office, Co Limerick Arts Office and Co Tipperary Arts Office.
