About this Event
Preserving Your Future – Legacy planning for older women artists explores the complex layers of legacy planning for artists, in particular addressing the barriers faced by older women artists. Designed as an introduction to the myriad of issues to consider and navigate, the forum will provide preliminary information and case studies on the requirements of law, copyright, moral rights, conservation and archiving, and planning with the future managers of your estate.
Assoc. Professor Kate MacNeill (Uni of Melb) will share her knowledge and expertise in this area. Artists and members of And Also Presents and the Women’s Art Register will discuss the underlying issues and the steps in managing your artistic legacy.
Asking the questions: How do I want to be remembered as an artist? What is the value of my life’s work to my community? Who is best equipped to manage my legacy? Where do I start?
Presented by And Also Presents and the Women’s Art Register.
