- OUR SERVICE
New West Theatre offers its services to groups, organizations and artists through the Website to enable and assist artists and groups who wish to participate in Arts in the Parks to build and manage an artist promotional channel and present and feature productions of their proposed production including theatrical performances, live music, mixed media, video installations, street art and other media (Artist Submissions).
On a periodical basis, a panel of selected specialists (Arts in the Parks Committee) and the Website users (New West Theatre Administration) select Artist Submissions (the Featured Artist Submissions) to be contracted for Arts in the Parks, with discretion on the Website and in New West Theatre offline partners, social media platforms, editorial pages and newsletters (subject to limitations of space, suitability and other editorial considerations).
New West Theatre accepts Artist Submissions for consideration by the New West Theatres Website on condition that the Artist Submissions comply with the representations and warranties set out in Section 4 of these Artist Submission Terms. Without prejudice to any other legal remedy that may be available to us, we reserve the right to reject any Artist Submission (either before or after it has been selected as a Featured Artist Submission) and remove it from the Website and any other publications or circulars, if we determine, at our sole discretion, that the Artist Submission fails to comply with those requirements.
New West Theatre expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with Artist Submissions. New West Theatre reserves the right to remove any Artist Submissions from the Website and from the consideration process by the New West Theatre Artistic Staff, in its sole discretion and without prior notice (whether on the basis of a breach of warranty or obligation under these Artist Submission Terms or for any other reason). Further, New West Theatre reserves the right to terminate any user’s access to the Website at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
Artists who, in the sole opinion of New West Theatre and Arts in the Parks, do not comply with these Artist Submission Terms, may at any time be excluded from consideration.
