ART + LAW National Conference for Visual Artists & Art Lawyers June 8th – 10th 2012, Lord Elgin Hotel, Ottawa

Please note that page is an archive of a conference that was in 2012.

This year, CARFAC is pleased to invite visual artists and arts lawyers from across Canada to come together and discuss the intersection of art and the law. CARFAC’s work involves educating artists about their economic and legal rights. Many of the questions that our artist members call us about are legal in nature – everything from copyright to contract disputes and tax issues. This year’s conference will explore the unique challenges faced by artists and arts organizations when things get legal.

The conference will have two streams – one for artists and one for lawyers. Each stream has a different schedule and registration – some events will overlap, but the two groups will split for specialized panels and breakout groups. Be sure to register for the right stream by choosing your link below:
