ARTISTS & ORGS: HOW TO GET HELP
SUSTAINING A CULTURE OF CREATIVITY
In virtually every nation around the globe, art and creativity serve as cornerstones of culture, allowing individuals from different walks of life to share and convey thoughts, feelings and ideas common to the human experience in ways that transcend the barriers of language and geography. Access and exposure to the arts enriches and empowers individuals to engage their creative faculties, and contributes to the diverse and vibrant fabric of social discourse and expression. Philadelphia in particular is a hub of artistic and creative talent, boasting arts institutions like The Barnes and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, a rich musical and theater history, as well as countless murals and other works of public art. Yet many who choose to pursue a career in the arts often struggle financially due to a widespread lack of funding or support for their chosen profession, and are left without access to much-needed services. For individual artists, arts & culture nonprofits and creative small businesses, legal protection and support need not be cost prohibitive or difficult to obtain.
With an expansive network of experienced attorneys trained in a wide variety of legal practice areas, PVLA is able to match individuals, organizations and collectives in the arts and cultural community with skilled professional volunteers to tackle virtually any arts-related legal issue. Join the countless Philadelphia creative sector clients who have obtained pro bono legal support through Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
