In addition to the membership services and opportunities available to Artsource PLUS members, Artsource MAX members receive annual insurance cover designed specifically for professional visual artists. Only artists who meet professional artist membership requirements (PLUS and MAX) are eligible for Artsource Professional Artist Insurance, on payment of MAX membership.
The insurance cover is included in the price of your annual Artsource MAX membership subscription.
Please be sure that you understand the scope of the insurance cover offered through your Artsource MAX membership.
The combined annual cover that Artsource has arranged for MAX members has two components:

  • Annual indemnity insurance against all sums which the Insured becomes liable to pay by way of compensation for bodily injury and/or property damage to a third party resulting from an occurrence which arises from the Insured’s negligence.*
  • Annual personal accident insurance that provides for the replacement of an artist’s income in the case of an accident that affects their work, and covers some of the costs that arise in the case of accidental death. 

* Acts of negligence could include: leaving your tools in a place where a member of the public trips over them; advice that you may give to anyone on a professional basis in connection with your visual arts practice; or any fault in the actual design of your product.

It is virtually impossible to give instances in all cases, because each case will depend on the circumstances and these always differ.
If you have any questions or are not sure if this insurance is right for your circumstances, please contact Artsource or Local Community Insurance Services (based in Adelaide).
