We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Arts Law provides legal information to the arts across the full spectrum - music, literture, all the visual arts and crafts and multi media. They also have a Twitter feed. I “follow” that and so I found this article on The Business of Being an Artist.

Something to refer to when we think about the discussion at the August Meeting (AGM)
