STACKTx Ottawa – Workshop #3: Intellectual Property and Artist Legal Rights Facilitated by CARFAC National

July 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This workshop will explore the ways in which the artists can protect their legal rights and work from a place of informed self-advocacy. The artists will be walked through various legal terms, bill of sale agreements, exhibition agreements, and private commission contracts. 


CARFAC National

We believe that artists, like professionals in other fields, should be paid for their work and share equitably in profits from their work. As the national voice of Canada’s professional visual artists, CARFAC defends artists’ economic and legal rights and educates the public on fair dealing with artists. In doing so, CARFAC promotes a socio-economic climate conducive to the production of visual arts. CARFAC engages actively in advocacy, lobbying, research and public education on behalf of artists in Canada.


Larissa Desrosiers 

Larissa Desrosiers is an Ojibwe Queer Singer/Songwriter and Beadworker from Couchiching First Nation in Treaty #3. She has been living as a guest on Unceded, Unsurrendered Algonquin Anishinaabe Territory since 2014. She is in the process of finishing her Bachelor of Music Degree at Carleton University with a Minor in Indigenous Studies where she had the opportunity to study under Singer/Songwriter Lynn Myles, as well as Guitar Virtuoso Don Ross. Upon taking a break from school in 2019, Larissa started a beadwork microbusiness: Bangishimon Beadwork. Whether on stage howling with her guitar or at her desk with her beads, Larissa’s goal has always been to create space for healing, grieving, imagination, and social growth. She has had the opportunity to do so through projects like the National Arts Centre’s Indigenous Cities: Ottawa and FemmeVox, where she collaborated on an original song with Amanda Rheaume. Larissa was formerly the Workshop Manager for indigenousprotocols.art, and is excited to now move forward with CARFAC National as Programs Director. Whether it’s the arts, advocacy, or aunty-ing her nieces and nephews around the dinner table, Larissa moves through life with an unwavering passion to help people.
