Contracts of Care are designed to empower independent artists and producers.
In 2012 Wide Awake Devon needed to contract a number of live performance companies where there was no financial exchange.
After a number of conversations I developed the Contract of Care which sets out the expectations of both parties in terms of behaviour, commitment, ambition using informal, plain language.
The currency of a Contract of Care is value.
I then developed the template for Contract of Care for commissioning through my role at Kaleider.
The Contract of Care is currently used for all resident relationships and commissioning agreements at Kaleider.
I am currently working with Alice Tatton Brown to look at how Contract of Care could be used more widely across the sector.
If you are interested in using the Contract of Care template or talking more then please get in touch.
