My advice / My idea If you’re at the very beginning of your project, my suggestion is to let you guide by funding opportunities in your scenario. For example, there are specific calls for NGO, non-profits, associations or private companies. You can even structure your organization based on the typical funding opportunity or even temporarily just to apply for a contract (in Italy we have a specific legal form for that called ATS - "associazione temporanea di imprese").
My expertise about the subject I am actually the CEO of a private company, President of the “Make in Italy” association, and a Board member of “CPSM” association. For each of these experiences I had to develop negotiation skills to deal with notaries and lawyers, and I learned the potential benefit of good legal advice.
My potential limits as a mentor I can share my experience for sure but legal stuff is very specific and often requires dealing with specialists.
What expertise I’d like to find among the network, to complete mine? Legal consultancy could be very expensive, but the good news is that this kind of advice could be easily shared among a network to build a “knowledge base” of basic legal stuff needed to start a cultural project.
Why it's relevant? How to use it?

This is the statute of my “Make in Italy” association. Unfortunately it’s in only Italian, but it’s a good example of the core governance document of a non-profit organization in Italy. It contains a lot of rules about how to take decisions, about operations and the purpose of the association. This kind of documents are usually (but not mandatorily) written by a notary, but their core content is always sent up to the founder.
