Event description

Description

Risks, Rights and Reputations is led by Index on Censorship in partnership with What Next? and Cause4.

Partner Logos Risks Rights and Reputations


This vital half day training for CEOs and Chairs of Trustees supports arts and cultural organisations to handle difficult subjects and sensitive stories to deliver the best work possible.

Navigating the rights and responsibilities of art that explores socially sensitive work can appear daunting, risky and time-consuming; the prospect of controversy, protest, police intervention and possible closure or cancellation because the work is provocative, or the funder is controversial, can be powerful disincentives. And yet great art has always fuelled controversy, and experimentation and risk taking are integral to achieving excellent, relevant art.

Thought provoking, challenging and practical. I left much better equipped to deal with ‘difficult’ topics in our work

The training will support participants to:

  • Deepen understanding of the legal and rights framework supporting artistic freedom in the UK
  • Explore the impact on freedom of expression of BME artists of recent controversies in the arts
  • Explore the dilemmas thrown up by ethical fundraising
  • Support organisations to understand when and how to build a relationship with the police in relation to controversial work

The seminar will be hosted at Watershed and delivered by experts including practitioners from Index on Censorship and Cause4.

1 ticket admits you and and your Chair of Trustees or a Trustee from your organisation.
