Canadian Artists’ Representation (CARFAC Ontario) will hold a series of high-access legal clinic drop-in sessions for diverse artists who face systemic barriers and experience social, cultural, and economic marginalization. Focusing on artists within the Greater Toronto Area, they include those from the Indigenous, racialized, LGBTQ2S, disability communities, artists affected by barriers like poverty, mental health issues, and access to employment and education. CARFAC Ontario will be working in partnership with Artists’ Legal Advice Services. Members of the visual arts community face a growing number of legal issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this project will increase access to justice for the community by providing increased opportunities for them to obtain legal advice from pro bono lawyers in a format that is less formal and intimidating than the services that are currently offered.
