January 4th, 2019

With the massive amount of media being easily shared digitally, how do we know what’s fair to use or what others can use of ours?

Recent court cases with Canadian artists emphasize the importance of understanding copyright. Presenting and accessing creative works – art, photography, video, writing, music – is easier than ever and this has major implications on how we choose to showcase our creative output.

From understanding copyright and its applications for creators to fair dealing and fair use, lawyer and copyright expert Martha Rans will unravel the shifting and evolving legal issues that need to be a major part of your business as an artist. This workshop is recommended for all creators: visual artists, media artists, composers, writers, performing artists, and photographers and is approximately 1.5 hours in length, plus Q & A.

  • Time & Date: 6:30 – 8 p.m, January 16, 2019
  • Location: Selkirk College – Kootenay Studio Arts (KSA) Campus, 606 Victoria St., Nelson BC
  • Cost: This workshop is free of charge, but pre-registration is required as space is limited.
