Empower yourself: Confident negotiation for visual artists

March 18, 2015 Comments Off on Empower yourself: Confident negotiation for visual artists News, Uncategorized

A national conversation

Coming to a city near you!

You’ve been offered an exhibition, but the fee is lower than you hoped. Maybe your work was posted online, and you weren’t offered anything… What’s your next move? Do you ask for more or keep your head down?

Fees and contracts are negotiable more often than you might think. This presentation series will explore ways to ask for more without damaging the working relationships you count on.

Starting in Saskatoon with CARFAC’s National Annual General Meeting, the conversation will travel across Canada, with sessions in most provinces. Watch this space for details.
