About this class

What work visa(s) are appropriate for individuals in creative industries?
What evidence do creatives need to show in order to submit a visa application?
What specific steps does the visa application process entail?

Many individuals in creative industries work in non-traditional work settings. Though immigration options for artists may seem limited from the outside, there are most certainly viable options for individuals working in artistic fields of work. A simple overview of the process can open the door to opportunity and a more stable career in the U.S

”I began working in immigration law because I want to help people. I have worked with many creatives over the years and it is sincerely one of the most fulfilling parts my job to see a musician perform or a artist present her work. Their passion is truly inspiring and I am so glad that I could be a part of making that process come to life” Sharon Brenner.

The class will be tailored depending on class size and the profession of the attendees. The visa process will be reviewed in lecture form accompanied by a visual presentation, followed by a Q&A.
