CARFAC has spent the last 5 years advocating for the Artist Resale Right (ARR). This legal right entitles visual artists to receive payment each time their work is resold publicly through an auction house or commercial gallery. CARFAC recommends that 5% of all eligible secondary market sales of art be paid back to the artist. CARFAC based their recommendations on the 69+ countries that have legislated the ARR. This proposal has since been endorsed by the Government of Nunavut (January 2012) and the municipality of Rankin Inlet (April 2014). In 2013, Bill C-516 introduced the ARR to Canadian Parliament.
This webinar is presented by April Britski, CARFAC’s Executive Director and is available at any time.
