As BC heads into phase 3, how are visual artists faring? In our needs assessment surveying 1,150 Canadian artists, arts organizations, and legal experts, we found that issues such as copyright, contracts, employment, and more are just a few of the many challenges facing creative workers today. For this panel discussion we will be joined by Director of the Eastside Culture Crawl Society Esther Rausenberg
, as well as East Coast visual artist Nadia Gohar
to expand on the visual artist experience in COVID-19, and how this community can move forward.
