Help Us Tackle the Big Issues of Tomorrow

Supporting Australia’s artists is vital to protect the vibrancy, history, and story of our nation. We understand that with the cost of living going up, donations can be a big ask. At Arts Law though, every dollar donated goes toward helping grow our impact – and no amount donated goes unappreciated.

“With Arts Law’s help, I was able to understand my rights and make sure my work was protected.”

From keeping our free legal advice available to artists to sending our expert lawyers to remote art centres, donations ensure that Arts Law can do as much good possible for the sector. Recently, our team have been on outreach to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists around Alice Springs, the Kimberley, and Coober Pedy.

Your contribution can also be used to help Arts Law improve the accessibility of our services. We recently saw a redevelopment of our Artists in the Black webpage by Code for Australia, following extensive user research, and have ambitions to continue to improve our digital presence.

In 2022, some 1754 Telephone Legal Advices and 733 Document Reviews were delivered by Arts Law. With 2414 artists empowered through our education program, we strive to ensure that Australia’s artists are better prepared for tomorrow.

From the rise of AI to the launch of Australia’s new National Cultural Policy in Revive – Arts Law needs to be prepared to act, help, and engage as the art sector changes. Donate during our end of financial year giving campaign to help us tackle the biggest issues of tomorrow.
