Art At Work Webinar: Estate Planning for Artists

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel this workshop.  Please check upcoming Art At Work sessions in 2022 as this session will be rescheduled.


Deciding what happens to your artwork after you’re gone is important, and having a plan in place for your estate will also be valuable for those you care about. Join in a conversation about how to be proactive in protecting your artistic legacy with Martha Rans, Pacific Legal Education & Outreach Society’s Legal Director. Session includes a Q&A for participants to ask their questions during the live-streamed event.

This workshop was developed by Pacific Legal Education & Outreach Society, which is a group of volunteer lawyers and law students committed to working with artists and arts organizations. PLEO offers resources, workshops and clinics across BC.
