The performing arts world is confronting some of the harshest challenges of any industry in the wake of the global pandemic. Cancelled and postponed events, potential repurposing of venues and a dramatic drop in revenue are among the many issues raising concerns.

If you have questions about the legal issues that COVID-19 poses for the performing arts business, join us for a Q&A webinar on Thursday, May 21. Hosted by the Entertainment and Sports Law Group at Gowling WLG in partnership with the Canadian Association for the Performing Arts/l'Association canadienne des organismes artistiques (CAPACOA), our leading authorities, including Susan Abramovitch and Alexis Vaughan, will answer your concerns.

We ask that you submit questions in advance by completing the quick pre-webinar survey which can be found at this link by Wednesday May 13.

Your questions will help curate the bulk of discussions, plus we will aim to cover the following topics:

  • Dealing with cancelled or postponed events
  • Accessing support from the federal and/or provincial governments
  • Dealing with staffing changes
  • Maintaining event spaces
