Today we're looking at the ins and outs of NDAs, Intellectual Property, and Employment Contracts

Calling all creatives who need a little legal know-how...

Just started selling your artwork? In conversation about consignment with a gallery? Have you just started taking on staff? Dreaming up a collaboration with a friend? Whatever your conundrum, it’s time to pick up the pen and paper for a 101 crash course in the 3 contracts you must know to set you in good business stead. You’ll thank yourselves later.

We will be looking at the ins and outs of NDAs, Intellectual Property, and Employment Contracts (with a side of consignment contracts for all the artists out there!).

There’s no need to be overwhelmed by legal jargon - once you have the basics of these three contract types understood, it’s all up from there!

Joining us will be Jon Sharples and Alexandra Mizzi, Howard Kennedy LLP, associates who often advise creatives and specialise in IP and Employment contracts.


About Sarabande Foundation

Sarabande was set up by the late designer, Lee Alexander McQueen, who left the majority of his estate to support creative and visionary talent. In addition to providing scholarships and studio space for artists, Sarabande produces a number of events, from the practical to the inspirational.

Sarabande operates from a listed Stable Block conversion in Haggerston, where 15 studios form a creative community with designers and artists from multiple disciplines. Immersed in the hub of East London’s rich creative spirit, Sarabande exudes all that encompasses the creative sphere. The building is home to a plethora of artisans reflecting the multifarious span of Lee’s talent and the variety of craftspeople he worked with his own collections. Amongst others, our tactile artists include sculptors, fashion designers, jewellers, textile designers, painters, performance artists, silversmiths, costume designers, ceramicists, and dancers. Alongside these, Sarabande also houses filmmakers, animators, photographers, digital designers, and visual artists.
