You've been offered an exhibition, but the fee is lower than you hoped. Your work was posted online, but you weren’t offered anything... What’s your next move? Do you ask for more or keep your head down?
Fees and contracts are negotiable more often than you might think. On October 1st from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, join CARFAC National Director April Britski as she explores ways to ask for more without damaging the working relationships you count on and offers you the tools to negotiate contracts with confidence.
