Following consultations held at our first forum in September 2012, digital artists have shown a strong interest in developing model contracts for the dissemination of their works. Until now, there were no model contracts. These were to be based on models from the performing arts (theatre and dance). To meet this need, CQAM has developed, in collaboration with the consultant Georges Azzaria and a committee of digital artists, several model contracts that it makes available to the entire media arts community. These standard contracts can be downloaded in PDF format free of charge and adapted.

The consultant:

Georges Azzaria is a media artist specializing in intellectual practice. Mr. Azzaria has a good knowledge of the media arts community having served on several boards of directors of centres and groups.

The committee of artists in digital arts:

Sofian Audry
Jason Arsenault
Diane Landry
Étienne Grenier
Nelly-Ève Rajotte

CQAM thanks Georges Azzaria, the committee and its board of directors for their contributions.

The Media Arts Distribution Schedules are the result of more than a year of consultations with a committee of artist-run centres, presenters and artists. They are intended to guide artists, curators and organizations in the establishment of fees and charges, a need expressed by the community at the 2012 CQAM forum.

This guide is primarily intended for organizations in the media arts community that wish to develop residency projects in an industrial setting. Any artist considering participating in such a project should also consult this guide to determine if he or she is about to evolve in an environment where he or she will be supported and respected. This guide is divided into three sections:

-A presentation of the reflections that are at the origin of this guide as well as the definition of a more general framework that should surround the implementation of this type of residence.

-A series of 7 sections covering many of the issues that could be addressed
arise during such a residency project.

-A standard contract for the artist, arts organization and host company.
