BAM! Complete Guide to
Contracts – COMPANION

Clear Contract Copies for the Performing Arts
Contracts are a summary of agreements reached by two parties.
There is no magic to them; there is no necessity for convoluted or
confusing language; there is no “one size fits all” document that
will work for every situation.

So, this Companion Volume to the BAM! Complete Guide to
Contracts offers you some examples of contracts I have used. They
are not meant to be copied wholesale, but are offered as guidance
for making up your own contract. You will want your contract to
specify and, above all, clarify your requirements, your concerns

I hope that these contracts will assist you in defining terms that
will help you in your creative life. Good luck!
