The dinner, featuring art, performances, and tributes from staff, presidents, clients and supporters was a true celebration of the achievements of Arts Law in its 30 years of assisting Australia’s artists. The evening also was also a financial success raising funds for Arts Law and its service for Indigenous artists, “Artists in the Black”.
