SERVICES

Our services are designed to help artists, content curators and creative professionals make informed decisions with respect to their work and careers.

 

We aim to achieve this by providing support that can take the form of creating well-articulated contracts, reviewing or renegotiating terms, helping you protect your work, and facilitating workshops or courses to coach the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

Contracts & Negotiations

Whether it’s creating a system of agreements, or making sure you are being offered the best terms, we provide you with the necessary skills and market know-how to help you make the right choices.
