Empower Yourself: Confident Negotiations for Visual Artists
A National Conversation

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.

VANL-CARFAC will present a panel discussion and professional development session entitled Empower Yourself: Confident Negotiations for Visual Artists on Saturday, September 12th in the Meeting Room of the Quality Inn in downtown St. John’s at 3:00pm.

Artists Chloe Lewis (Artist and Director of Eastern Edge Gallery), Andrew Taggart (Artist), Tara Bryan (Artist) and Emily Lukaweski (Lawyer) are panelists with moderator Ingrid Mary Percy (Artist, Vice-Chair of VANL-CARFAC, NL Rep and Vice President of CARFAC National).

Learn more about how to conduct your negotiations and get a better deal for yourself. This event is free but donations will be gratefully accepted.

Date: Saturday, September 12th 2015 at 3 PM

Location: Meeting Room of Quality Inn, 2 Hill ‘o’ Chips, St. John’s, NL
