7th Professional Development Meeting

Contracts for the independent contemporary dance sector
29th September, 10am – 12noon, arrival from 9.45am
Centre 151, 151 Whiston Rd, London E2 8BL
Downstairs meeting room
We have invited guest speaker Thea Stanton, communications co-ordinator at ITC - Independent Theatre Council, to join us. She will speak to us about choreographers’ legal rights, correct rates and conditions and about negotiating contracts.
Next, we will have a look at the contracts in use in the independent contemporary dance sector at the moment and analyse what’s good, what’s missing and what needs improving. The outcome will be a template that emerging artists can use in their actual practice! In the absence of templates suitable for independent artists at this stage of their career this will fill a gap and help artists behave professionally from the outset.
It will be our most exciting and forwards-pushing workshop yet. Join us when we write a small piece of history!
Looking ahead: For our 8th meeting we have invited a guest speaker from Equity and we will explain in realistic ways and step by step how to act when you find yourself in a work situation in which you feel exploited or unfairly or even illegally treated. Watch this space for the date and time tbc soon.
