Have you ever wondered how copyright law applies to you as an artist? Feeling unstable as an artist in an increasingly digital world? Are you interested in applying for artist grants but have no idea where to start? Or do you simply want to meet other artists in your community over coffee and sandwiches?
The Breakfast Club will feature learning for artists at all stages of their careers. This in-person event will begin with breakfast and a workshop delivered by students from UVic PBSC (Pro Bono Students Canada) to answer all your questions about how to protect yourself legally as an artist. Then, the staff from ECAH will deliver a short presentation on how to dip your toes into that sweet artist grant money.
