Copyright for Artists with Arts Law- webinar
15th April 5pm

Creating art means creating copyright. Let us walk you through owning and using your copyright, knowing your moral rights as well as creating copyright with other people. This session uses practical examples, case studies from artists’ experiences and hypothetical scenarios to help make copyright accessible and, dare we say, fun for creatives. This session is relevant to all creatives and artists across all art forms.
