This forum will help artists decide the best business model for
their creative practice. The discussion led by William Rattner (Executive Director of Lawyers for the Creative Arts) talks about what it means for an organization to apply for non-profit IRS 501-c3 status, and investigates whether 501-c3 status is right for burgeoning cultural groups.

This forum is part of the At Work Forums series, sponsored by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture. At Work Forums are regular seminars, free and open to the public, that focus on issues of interest and concern for the Chicago arts community. Well known artists, experts, and advocates are invited to discuss best practices for Chicago's creatives in music, dance, theater, visual, art, and more.
