Artists' Union England have teamed up with specialist insurance brokers Hencilla Canworth to provide our members with £5m Public & Products Liability insurance, tailored specifically for the needs of practicing visual and applied artists who are based in the UK.

Insurance cover is automatically included with your membership subscription to AUE, currently set at £42 per annum.

Existing AUE members can find the documents needed to demonstrate they are covered by logging into the members area.

This policy provides cover in respect of legal liability for damages including claimant legal costs for;
• Accidental Injury to any person
• Accidental loss or damage to third party Property happening during the period of insurance in connection with the Business.

The limit of indemnity provided is £5,000,000 any one claim (any one period in respect of Products liability)

The Business activities covered by this policy are the provision of visual and applied art
including exhibitions or displays and the teaching of visual and applied art. Members
engaging in other activities should arrange separate cover.

Only individual members are covered by this policy so members with Limited Companies or those who engage others should make separate cover arrangements.

Please find documents below for details of the policy - PLEASE NOTE these are for reference only. Members need to log in and get their policy documents from the members' area to prove they are covered.
