Provide Free Legal Education Seminars and Workshops to Artists of All Disciplines

About the Project

Georgia Lawyers for the Arts, through its network of more than 700 volunteer attorneys and artist panelists, will provide free legal seminars to musicians, songwriters, photographers, sculptors, dancers, actors, filmmakers, painters, graphic designers, and artists from many other disciplines through the provision of educational seminars, clinics and workshops. With your donation, GLA will conduct 50 FREE legal educational seminars and workshops for artists and arts organizations throughout the year on numerous legal and business-related topics. All Metro-Atlanta creatives who need legal assistance with regard to their artistic endeavors or arts organizations will be eligible to attend our weekly seminars free of charge. 

As part of this Project, GLA  will host four seminars and workshops each month.  Those seminars will be directed to artists from all mediums (i.e.,“Basics of Copyright Law for Artists,”“Contract Issues for Artists,” “Financial Issues for Artists,”). Your donation will enable GLA to host more seminars and include narrowly-tailored workshops for specific disciplines (“Photography Law 201,” “Legal Issues for Visual Artists” “Music Law in the Digital Age,” “How to Negotiate with Galleries”), which will educate artists in a particular field about specific legal issues. GLA's FREE legal education seminars open to all Atlanta artists will enable them to create with an understanding of their legal rights, will engender a strong arts community, and will improve the local economy.
