Artists Legal Needs Focus Group in Ottawa
Tuesday, February 18, 2020

SAW Gallery
67 Nicholas Street, Ottawa, ON K1N 7B9

This focus group in Ottawa, facilitated by CPAMO, is part of the project to develop an essential national network of federally funded legal services for artists across Canada. There are currently five legal clinics for the arts across Canada who work tenaciously to fund their efforts and service their local artists. A National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts will unify and coordinate better access to free legal resources, services and information, empowering artists nationwide.

The results from this focus group together with the Artists Needs Assessment Survey will give a fulsome picture of artists’ needs from coast-to-coast and will be presented to the Canada Council of the Arts in April 2020.

This focus group is open for artists and arts organizations in any arts discipline. It is free to attend but requires online registration:

Please note attendees’ contact information will be shared with project partner Pacific Legal Education and Outreach Society.

Light snacks and drinks provided.
