Resources for Creators

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” -- Pablo Picasso

Our first commitment is to individuals and groups who use their voices, express their vision, and offer their creative work to enhance the diversity of our culture. For artists and creators in every discipline, we provide information, commentary, and resources to help you better understand and navigate the dynamic markets for your works and creative services. Artists, creators, teachers, legal advocates, business leaders, and supporters can also share ideas, stay informed, and learn from one another through our network of Copyright Advocates.
