Workshop and Lecture Contracts

Most artists on the lecture/workshop circuit have one or two horror stories to tell. A good contract or letter of agreement that clearly spells out your expectations and requirements will go far in reducing the number (and severity) of bad experiences with which
you will have to cope.
.
Following are samples of contracts and/or requirements currently being used by a number of teachers and lecturers. Reviewing them may assist you in developing and customizing a contract that meets your own specific needs.
