National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts

IntegralOrg provides training and support to not-for-profit and charitable organizations in Alberta on governance, strategic planning, risk management and regulatory compliance. We ask for your opinion and invite you to participate in the following survey. The purpose of this survey is to obtain information on the current perception of legal challenges faced by artists, arts administrators and arts organizations and to determine if steps are being taken to address them. In particular, the survey aims to examine the legal needs of the arts and culture sector and how artists, arts administrators and arts organizations can access legal information, education or advice. Your background – either as an individual artist, arts organization (including board members) and independent arts consultant and manager; Over the next 3 months, the project team will oversee preliminary research on current resources and gaps in existing legal services for creators in Canada. This includes a needs assessment and a series of focus groups with stakeholders. The establishment and formalization of a network of legal clinics for the arts will greatly enhance our ability to provide legal information, advice and education from coast to coast to coast. More information about the project can be found under legalclinicsforarts.com. The National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts is a proposed system of affiliated regional legal centres for artists and arts organizations that includes existing Canadian pro bono legal clinics.

Calgary`s IntegralOrg has been added to the National Network of Legal Clinics for the Arts map on its National Network website. It is the first Alberta organization to join the network. There are currently five legal clinics that provide essential capacity support to creators, arts organizations, their administrators, technicians and other art professionals in the fields of performance, literature, digital, and media and visual arts. They provide an online database of resources and dozens of educational offerings each year (e.g., workshops and conferences). In response to the urgent and varied legal questions and needs of artists, these forums promote and strengthen artistic and cultural networks through new collaborations and networks. The survey is expected to last approximately 5-10 minutes and will be evaluated using analytical methods based on quantitative and qualitative responses. Click here to read the full report.
