Specialty Insurance Agency (SIA) is a boutique insurance agency servicing performers, vendors, and event planners across the United States since 1992. Think mimes and mermaids, fire performers and aerialists—or food trucks and farm stands, artisan crafters, and kettle corn booths. SIA takes clients that often have specific, unique needs for their businesses, which means they aren’t your average insurance agents. Since their clients are extraordinary, they must be as well.
Liability insurance for performers is one of those topics that isn’t widely discussed in our industry. And even when it is discussed amongst peers and performers, it’s difficult to know if the advice you’re receiving will fit your own needs as an independent performing artist. Realistically, the right policy for you will look different from the person’s next to you, depending on your act, equipment, travel frequency, and other factors. One of our core beliefs at CircusTalk is equal access to industry knowledge and information like this, which is why we’re excited to present this advice mini-series from Specialty Insurance Agency to our members.
If you’re just now tuning in, be sure to check out the first session from SIA to see what coverage options there are, and go over examples of what may or may not be covered. In this second of two sessions, meet Lynn and Ariel, SIA members who both perform and hold policies with SIA; brush up on safety tips to consider during a performance; and learn which insurance questions to ask when booking gigs. Biggest takeaway? Expect the unexpected!
