Protégé: Insurance for Art Schools

Does your art school work with an insurance brokerage that has specialized knowledge of the arts and entertainment community, and that understands the specific needs of an arts organization?

Protégé is an insurance product custom-designed for art schools by Front Row Insurance Brokers. The program grew organically out of our longstanding engagement with the arts community. We realized that creators are also educators, and that our clients needed an insurance product that could cover their workshops, summer camps, and training seminars. We wanted to create a policy that helps foster creative expression, one that protects teachers and students alike, that helps create safe spaces to learn, where students can take risks, challenge each other, and grow with confidence.

Coverages available include:

  • Studio Property
  • Business Continuity
  • Bodily injury & Property Damage Liability
  • Educators Errors & Omissions
  • Property off Premise
  • Event Cancellation
  • Abuse Liability

Protégé is one of the few policies to offer abuse coverage. Should the unthinkable occur, we have a team of experts in crisis management that can help you navigate the difficult legal and emotional challenges of allegations of misconduct. But more importantly, we’re proactive. We work with you to develop risk management strategies. For example, we can consult on background checks, or the spatial arrangement of rooms, traffic flows, or scheduling. We want to prevent potential hazards from ever happening in the first place, so that students, staff, and parents can build confidence and trust in each other.

That’s why we partnered with Ecclesiastical, one of the top Insurers worldwide for private schools and cultural institutions. They are an insurance company notable for their outstanding goodwill. Owned by a charitable trust, they donate all their annual profits to charities. They have over 120 years of experience, and world-class resources that are made available to you through Protégé.

Protégé is insurance made for creatives by creatives. What? Insurance can be creative! At Front Row, we like to think of ourselves as part of the ecology of arts and entertainment. We don’t just provide services to the arts community – we’re an integral part of it. Give us a call and find out how Protégé can help protect your most valuable asset: the next generation of artists.

Pricing begins at $600 for a small school. To learn more, click here.

If you’re running an art school, then we don’t need to tell you the amount of passion, drive, and dedication required to run a school and coach students to success. We probably don’t need to tell you this also brings a huge amount of responsibility for the well-being of your students, who are often young and in close relationships with their teachers.

As you consider how to run your school in a way that BEST protects your students from physical and sexual abuse, consider our Protégé program.

Protégé is the only insurance program of its kind that goes the extra mile to protect art schools AND their students from situations related to sexual and physical abuse. Along with all of the other insurance requirements your school needs, Protégé provides the highest level of support and protection for your students. This is our passion.

We’ve become known for our expertise in guiding many arts organizations through difficult claims involving abuse, and helping schools implement measures that prevent situations of abuse in the first place. Here’s how our Protégé program goes the extra mile for schools and students:

  1. In situations where there are allegations of abuse, Protégé can pay for no-fault rehab and counselling costs. 
  2. In situations resulting in damage to studio/school property, Protégé covers the costs for owned and rented property damages.
  3. In liability situations, Protégé covers bodily injuries to people that have been invited to the studio.
  4. To support business continuity, Protégé pays the salaries of your staff if the studio is destroyed while you are searching for a new space.
  5. Re: errors and omissions, Protégé covers costs if students aren’t satisfied with the curriculum.

When you sign up for the Protégé program, you’ll receive our deep experience in putting preventative safeguards in place that will help prevent situations of abuse from happening in the first place. We’ll walk you through all the areas of your business protocols to help you put systems in place that better protect students.
