This workshop will focus on the possibilities, which surround the externalisation of an artist’s practice. This is specifically conceptualised as furthering an understanding of the narratives and words used around your practice and a consideration of the usefulness of these. As such the tools of externalisation of practice will be considered – such as websites, CV’s, portfolios, artists statements, blogs etc and how they work together (or not) to advantage an artist in the placement of their practice in an external context. This workshop will focus on the consideration of these various tools and enable you to better communicate and present your practice to others. This session has been designed to raise awareness amongst participants and better equip them with the understanding of how to better externalize their own practice.

A number of legal and quasi-legal issues arise when you establish a website. What rights do you have in the domain name? How safe is it to put your images online? Can you link to and use other images found online? How do you draft suitable website terms and conditions dealing with copyright and privacy? What other laws are you bound to observe if you sell works through the website? Linda Scales will examine these and other issues relating to artists’ websites. It will be an interactive and practical session, suitable for artists who already have a website and those who are planning one.

Linda Scales is a solicitor practising and lecturing in copyright and related areas of law. She has a particular interest in the visual arts, and is a founder member and director of the Irish Visual Artists Rights Organisation, the copyright collecting society for visual artists.
