The Orchard Project, and its parent company The Exchange, want to remain part of the narrative of your work, and as a resident company or artist, your contract requires that you provide credit for any and all work accelerated during your time with us. Doing so allows us to maintain a relationship with the work, with you, increase awareness of our efforts, and remain involved without encumbering the future life of your work. Without this evidence of successful development of the work we support, we also risk losing valuable donations and grants. For these reasons, we are adamant that all artists who develop work at The Orchard Project abide by the following clause in the residency contract.
Our agreement states:
As it pertains to work(s) I develop in-part or in-full during my residency, the following credit, with Orchard Project logo, will appear in all program, press and marketing materials, printed or online, alone on a separate line on title credit pages, with the exception of printed paid advertising of less than ¼ page;
"[Title of Project] was developed, in part, with assistance from The Orchard Project, a program of The Exchange (www.exchangenyc.org) ." (with logo)
In 2011, Orchard Project agreements also included the following clause:
Credit shall also be provided in catalogues, publications of the Play in book, magazine or recorded form, and all multi-media or audio-visual reproductions or adaptations of the Play, including, but not limited to: motion picture, television, audio or video tape, compact disc, digital versatile disc (DVD), internet or any future such medium. Credits hereunder shall be in accordance with the format of the particular catalogue, book, magazine, recording, or audio-visual reproduction or adaptation, but shall in no instance be smaller than that provided to artists or staff also receiving credit.
