Arts Law & You 2

  • VU at MetroWest 138 Nicholson Street Footscray, VIC, 3011 Australia (map)

Arts West and Western Edge Youth Arts are pleased to present two workshops on Copyright and Intellectual Property and how it impacts the independent and small to medium Arts Sector. Delivered by Arts Law Australia, this series of workshops will build on our previously presented Arts, Law & You event held in 2017 where we looked briefly at Contracts; Copyright & IP; Artists Collaborations; and Privacy & Data Laws. Attendee feedback from our previous event showed a strong interest in delving deeper into Copyright and Intellectual Property with particular attention on how they work in today’s online environment and working with culturally diverse communities.

While open to any artist interested in learning more about these topics, the aim of these workshops is to provide an accessible Professional Development opportunity for culturally and linguistically diverse artists, small to medium arts organisations, Students of Arts and Culture related courses and other interested Artists in Melbourne’s Western suburbs.
