The Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law) is thrilled to announce our new President, the Honourable Justice John Sackar.
Justice Sackar joins us as a distinguished legal practitioner and a strong advocate for the Australian arts community and a keen collector of art and other objects. He is particularly passionate about protecting the moral and legal rights of artists and the special cultural integrity of Indigenous art.
Arts Law’s Robyn Ayres and Donna Robinson were in Broome and Fitzroy Crossing this month to visit local First Nations art centres. They were joined by local Perth lawyer, Matt Clarke from Dentons.
Arts Law CEO, Robyn Ayres gave us an inside look at what they achieved on their trip.
The Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law) commends Labor and the Greens for pledging their support to the Australian arts sector but calls for stronger investment in the Australian literature and visual arts sectors, and legislative protection of Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property rights. The Coalition is sadly silent by comparison, although it has made similar commitments in the music sector to those made by Labor.
On the 30th of April 2019, lawyers from across Australia were honoured for their contribution to the Australian arts community at Arts Law Centre of Australia's (Arts Law) annual pro bono awards.
