For 30 years, the Volunteers Lawyers for the Arts of Massachusetts has been here for the arts and cultural community when it has needed us most. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we have assembled an emergency response panel of large law firms ready and willing to advise artists and arts organizations on contracts, insurance, and labor and employment issues that are particularly relevant and concerning during this unprecedented time.
The VLA is also waiving our service fees for artists and organizations suffering financial hardship due to the coronavirus. While our physical office is closed for now, we are still answering calls (617.350.7600) and emails (email@example.com).
As an additional service to our constituents, here's a roundup of new and helpful resources for artists needing support:
The VLA will be updating this list weekly as more resources become available.
