Welcome

Welcome to the Artists' Legal Outreach web service.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE ONE OF OUR LAWYERS YOU MUST FILL OUT AN INTAKE FORM.

This site is home to our calendar of upcoming clinics, workshops and public events for creators, a number of toolkits,  an intake form for receiving legal assistance, as well as a database of legal information for artists and cultural workers.

The ALO's activities are only possible because of your donations and the time of our volunteers. Please contribute. Any amount helps. Thank you!

What is a maker?

Today the delightful Joy Garnett said something I want to remember: "Maker is a word used by those who used to be referred to as craftsman. Where "craft" or "craftsy" has a trivial connotation, supposedly, "maker" elevates the perception of it as "an art form" but with utility beyond art. Blah blah. It started as an ointment for the chip on the shoulder. Now, like all those words, it's been coopted by the tech sector, or parts of it.
