Arts and Law Conference - The Festival Edition: Taking Risks & Playing It Safe

About Arts and Law Conference - The Festival Edition: Taking Risks & Playing It Safe

Returning for a second year, Visiting Arts and Anderson Strathern bring together professionals from the arts and legal sectors for a lively and informative event during the Edinburgh Festivals, addressing the legal implications of international work and collaboration, intellectual property, and the digital landscape.

For 2017 we explore the theme of festivals and discuss how to create the perfect balance of an inspiring and memorable programme with the right measures in place to support the smooth running for both organisers and participants.

Meet and connect with professionals in both fields, and have the opportunity to ask any burning legal questions you have on the topic!
