WALA provides unique and greatly needed services for the arts community. Throughout the years WALA has provided expert legal guidance during my business transitions, and with my creative projects. I have learned a great deal in attending various workshops. Everyone associated with the WALA team, staff and lawyers, have always been very helpful, kind and professional. The organization is constantly exploring ways to support members in networking with peers and fulfilling their goals. Thank you WALA!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

establishing my business as an LLC, by receiving their legal guidance. And, recently, I received guidance in copyright procedures for a creative project that I am developing. The workshops that I have attended have contributed to my expertise in arts mgt.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The availability of the pro bono legal guidance, which I would not have been able to afford otherwise.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The directors, educational director, and lawyers. All very pleasant and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Extend its staff and services to provide an even larger network of support. They may have space or logistic challenges, that I am not aware of, for meetings and workshops.

Events such as seminars and workshops are extremely infrequent. The group engages in very little outreach and/or collaboration with area arts organizations in film, music and art. There is no regularity to newsletters, and event confirmations are not centralized thus resulting in sometimes never getting them (depending on who is organizing the event) or finding ambiguities with regard to start time/location. There is no apparent relationship with DC government. Finally, the so-called "income qualification" criteria for making use of WALA's primary mission is indeterminate, probably discriminatory and (because of privacy reasons) simply unadministerable. It should be done away with like in other major cities' parallel programs.

WALA lawyers generously donate their time and expertise to help advance the goals of artists in the DC area. The workshops and clinics are a very valuable resource for artists and authors who have legal questions, need guidance, or just want more information about a variety of topics that impact their work. WALA welcomes all artists, maintains very organized communications channels, and holds networking events.
