PVLA empowers underserved artists and arts organizations in the Philadelphia region by providing access to free legal services, knowledge, and resources.


PVLA believes...

...that art & artists are essential. Artists help us to understand the past, navigate the present, and collectively envision the future.

...that knowledge is power. Accessible legal literacy equips artists with tools to help them thrive.

...that lawyers can advance equity in the arts. Legal expertise that is respectfully offered advances self-determination and levels the playing field for under-resourced artists and arts organizations.


We envision a thriving and just arts ecosystem empowered by equitable access to exceptional legal resources.
