Ideal Terms and Conditions for Self Employed/Freelance Drama Practitioners and Educators: A Focus Group Discussion
11 April, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In this challenging time facing COVID-19, many drama educators have faced cancellations and a lack of compensation from those cancellations. This has resulted in many livelihoods being affected.
In this meeting, Lawyer Roland Samosir will listen and understand how contracts are drafted between you and the organisations you work with. Roland Samosir will then take on the task of drafting a document consisting of standard terms and conditions for Self Employed/Freelance Drama Practitioners and Educators so that you have the peace of mind to practice in the future.
This document of recommended/standard terms and conditions will be made available online for self-employed/freelance practitioners to refer to before accepting a contract, or for business owners to refer to when drafting a contract when hiring freelancers.
To register, fill up the form here. We’ll then get in touch with you via email with the Zoom Meeting link, and ask you to submit a sample contract that you have.

Roland is a Partner at the law firm of Low Yeap Toh & Goon LLP. He was involved in the Arts in his university days and beyond, taking on the roles of actor, soundman and stage manager in various productions. He knows that legal jargon, especially in contracts, can be confusing. Hoping that his legal training and involvement in the Arts could come in useful, he tries to demystify contracts to those who would listen to him, making contracts more understandable and manageable to those in the Arts.
