Artist’s Resale Right ©

Write to your Member of Parliament about ARR.

CARFAC and RAAV have been busy meeting with the Federal Government about the Artist’s Resale Right (ARR), and momentum is growing. Now is the time to write to your MP, asking for their support for ARR in a review of the Copyright Act, which is expected to begin this Fall.

Artist's Resale Right. Write to your Member of Parliament in support!

The ARR would enable artists to receive a royalty payment each time your work is sold in the secondary market through an auction house or commercial gallery. The ARR matters, because art often grows in value over time, and artists currently have no legal right to receive income from this growth. If Canada had an ARR, artists would benefit from sales at home and abroad, as it is already law in over 90 countries worldwide. Here is a summary of our ARR proposal.

Their advocacy work on this issue has led to a commitment from the Liberals to amend the Copyright Act to include an Artist’s Resale Right, and last fall it was listed as a priority in the Mandate Letters of Minister Rodriguez and Minister Champagne.

There is still so much to do, and your support is crucial. We know that direct interactions with constituents can go a long way. Please use this opportunity to connect with your Member of Parliament.

Not sure how to connect with your MP? Here is a template letter covering key points on why ARR is important to all artists in Canada, especially those who are Indigenous or seniors.

Resonance New Music at the Saint John Arts Centre 🎻

Two of our summer interns, Jean Schnell and Lessa Thornton, were able to attend The Saint John Arts Centre Summer Classics Series, which has been ongoing throughout July and August.

This event has two more days of lunchtime performances on August 10th and 17th. Todays performance showcased Resonance New Music with Andrew Reed-Miller, Robin Streb, and Nadia Francavilla.

The group was well synchronized and each instrument complimented the other. They applied their talents thoughtfully and used their instruments in a very unique way. It was an enriching experience.

ArtsLink recommends you visit the remaining shows by Tim Blackmore on August 10th and the Carleton Chamber Players on the 17th!

Both are at 12:15pm at the Saint John Arts Centre. For more information, see the schedule here.
