Drawing up an international touring exhibition agreement for the first time? Don’t have previous experience or access to specialist legal advice? This workshop will focus on drawing up contracts for international touring exhibitions and reviewing venue contracts for inbound international touring exhibitions.
Research by the British Council, ICOM UK and the Touring Exhibitions Group (TEG) has shown that one of the key issues for museums undertaking international touring exhibitions is the contractual aspect. In response to this demand, the British Council and ICOM UK have developed a template contract for UK museums undertaking international touring exhibitions. The contract covers every aspect of international touring exhibitions. It will be available free to download on the ICOM UK website www.uk.icom.museum/international-touring-exhibitions from Wednesday 1 March.
This workshop will introduce the template contract, explain how best to use it and explore the issues around contracts for international touring exhibitions. The speakers will be Tony Doubleday, Head of Legal, British Museum, Bernard Horrocks, Intellectual Property Manager, Tate, Dana Andrew, WIRP Project Manager, ICOM UK, and Katie Childs, Policy and Projects Manager, National Museum Directors Council. The day will include a panel discussion, chaired by Charlotte Dew, TEG Researcher, with participation from David Packer, Registrar, Fitzwilliam Museum, and Matthew Lawrence, Senior Exhibitions Project Manager, Royal Museums Greenwich.
