To ensure you are covered for any claims arising from incidents/accidents that may have occurred in the past, you must have a current policy. You will not be covered for historical clams if your policy has lapsed.
If a claim is made against an artist it is the policy in place at the date of the claim that will respond to the claim, not the policy in place at the time the work was performed. In the case of Professional Indemnity and Products Liability insurance in particular, it is essential that continuity of cover be maintained until the practice believes that the risks arising from its past work are negligible (notionally 5- 7 years).
All Flying Arts financial members can access the full range of membership benefits, including workshop rebate vouchers, membership card, discounted fees for selected Flying Arts events and more. For the full range of benefits, please view our member benefits.
