About the series:
RACC and the Oregon Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (OVLA) are joining forces this fall to host a series of three workshops geared towards educating artists and art workers on legal matters pertaining to their creative practice. This series aims to empower artists with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed decisions in their creative endeavors, while also offering a chance for our local art community to come together and connect.

Each workshop will be taught by a legal expert from OVLA and will focus on a specific topic relevant to creative individuals at any stage of their careers. The workshops will aim to demystify the often complex and daunting legal aspects of starting your own art business or organization; contracting your labor and skills; and navigating the boundaries and protections of copyright law.

Accessibility: We are committed to making our programs and services accessible to everyone. Please contact us directly or at info@racc.org to request any accommodations, translation, interpretation, or other assistance you need in registering for, or attending this program. We will be offering ASL interpretation on the live Zoom broadcast of each lecture. If you plan to attend in person, please contact us by August 30, 2023 to request interpretation services.
