The Law Society of New South Wales | Art for Justice, Art for a Cause

All artists and musicians are invited to submit original pieces of work to The Law Society of NSW’s Just Art and Just Music competitions.
“Just Art and Just Music are a chance for us to celebrate creativity and the rule of law as well as to support a vital Indigenous community organisation Bara Barang at the same time,” The Law Society of NSW President Pauline Wright said.
“The competitions are open not just to lawyers but to anyone who shares our motivation for justice from law students and crime buffs to lovers of Suits and The Good Wife.”
Matisse, Tchaikovsky and Kandinsky were lawyers. But lawyers today do not often get a chance to work outside the boundaries of black-letter law.
Just Art and Just Music were born from a desire to give lawyers a chance to express their creative side and connect with like-minded artists and musicians who have an interest in legal issues and the rule of law.
Artwork can be in any form – think painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking or photography. Likewise, we welcome musical compositions of any genre, from 90s electro-pop to classical violin melodies.
Entries will be judged in August and the finalists will be showcased at two illustrious charity events in September. There will be a musical concert for Just Music and an art exhibition for Just Art where artworks will be available for purchase.
Both music and art submissions can be made online. Entries close 31 July. The 2017 competition proudly supports the President’s 2017 charity, Bara Barang Corporation Ltd.
