COVID-19 Response Program

TALA announces free matches with pro bono attorneys for issues arising out of the coronavirus pandemic. 

a
Since 1979, TALA has served our arts community with professional guidance.  We  understand that in this uncertain time, many artists and nonprofit organizations could benefit from TALA’s pro bono matching services.
a
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, TALA is here to help advise artists and arts organizations on insurance, contract, and employment issues.
a
Due to these unprecedented circumstances, TALA is waiving the membership fee for artists and arts organizations suffering financial hardship due to the coronavirus, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
a
Our financial qualifications are still in place; however, if you’ve recently seen a rapid decline in income you will most likely qualify. New coronavirus related cases will be matched with a pro bono attorney on a one-off basis.
a
For artists and organizations that are already TALA members or wish to become members of TALA, you may request attorney consults for any arts related issue whether related to the pandemic or not.
a
If you are a TALA member, please request to be matched with an attorney through our usual process by using your membership number and completing the form here.

If you are not a current TALA member and have legal issues related to the coronavirus and subsequent government actions please fill out the form here.
