About La Playa Arts & Entertainment

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

The arts present a very specific set of risk exposures – and now your digital and online risks can expose you globally. We understand the risks and pressures you face - and we speak your language. We’ll support you with great advice - helping you make good decisions for your organization.

Our policies can help streamline costs, and we’ll always help you stay ahead of the game in managing risk. The show must always go on - insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast.

At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective!
