THE LONDON WORKSHOP 2017
09-12TH OCTOBER

THE LONDON WORKSHOP 2017 IS A 4-DAY SEMINAR FOR ARTISTS’ ESTATES AND ARTIST-ENDOWED FOUNDATIONS, DESIGNED TO HELP ALL THOSE ENTRUSTED WITH AN ARTISTS’ LEGACY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PRESERVING, PROMOTING AND ENHANCING IT.

The management of an artists’ estate can be learned. It is an intensive task of great responsibility and involves honoring the artist’s will, while at the same time respecting the interests of heirs and other stakeholders. The course will bring together the participants with experts from relevant fields of artist’s legacy planning and management providing best practice examples and state of the art industry knowledge in an exceptional learning environment for not more than 25 participants. The seminars are accompanied by comprehensive case studies and designed to serve participants of all jurisdictions, irrespective of the particular venue. However, the seminar will also cover specific UK tax and legal questions.
