As most arts organizations shut down temporarily and moved their work online during the 2020 Covid crisis, new ways of working with artists and audiences has emerged. In light of these changes, how do arts organizations ensure that the artists they work with are being treated fairly and paid for their work? How do artists negotiate their fees and roles for online formats? Join practicing artist Annie Briard and CARFAC National Executive Director April Britski for a discussion on the updated CARFAC Fee Schedule and new guidelines for paying artists. Hear how fees for artists are negotiated, and how both organizations and artists can work together to ensure we maintain a vibrant arts community during this time. This session is ideal for artists and arts organization staff who are interested in expanding their art practice into online formats.

This Art at Work Webinar will be live-steamed on the Zoom platform and will include live English transcription/closed captions during the event. Q+A from participants highly encouraged during the live-streamed talk, or you may email in questions prior to April 9th to ktycholis@richmond.ca.
