    Event description

    Practice 101: Insurance

    Join Arts Northern Rivers for an online professional development session for creatives. Facilitated by Penelope Benton, this online information session offers an introduction to liability and insurance policy. Are you covered? 

    Affordable and accessible insurance is an essential part of sustaining professional practice, providing protection for artists and arts workers against a range of risks. However, in recent years, many insurance providers have removed products and reduced coverage while increasing the cost of premiums, pricing many out of adequate coverage. 

    NAVA Members recently earned a major victory after QBE Insurance and Local Community Insurance Services (LCIS) reversed their decision to reduce coverage and products offered as part of the NAVA Premium Plus insurance policy.

    This session aims to demystify insurance policies for artists, discuss the recent changes and offer space for interrogation.

She is also a collaborative artist and previously held management roles with the student union at UNSW Art & Design, was Co-Artistic Director of Art Month Sydney 2013, and a co-Director at Firstdraft and Co-Founder/Director of artist and activist run space, The Red Rattler.
