Dana Vouglitois, Moderator

Coming soon!
Are you a musician, actor, painter, singer, comedian, or dancer…? A dynamic panel of young attorneys will provide fast-paced, in-person answers to questions that impact your success as an artist. From copyrights and contracts to incorporation and infringement issues, these lawyers speak your language – not legalese. Learn to:

  • Close a contract
  • Negotiate like a pro
  • Protect your intellectual property
  • Find legal assistance
  • Set up an arts business – and more!

Networking Happy Hour: Immediately following, meet, mingle, munch and sip with fellow artists and attorneys as you watch the live painting event in the W’s Living Room lounge – ArtServe’s newest initiative for artists.
