Local Canberra artists are invited to join Robyn Ayres, Executive Director of Arts Law Centre of Australia, for three "Artform in Focus' seminars, which will address legal issues facing artists working in the fields of photography, literature and the visual arts. Robyn will discuss the impact of recent changes in legislation and demystify legal rights and responsibilities specific to working in the arts.

Artform in Focus Photography - Monday 28 April 2014, 4.00pm to 5.00pm

Artform in Focus Literature / Writing / Self-Publishing - Monday 28 April 2014, 6.00pm to 7.00pm
