Creative Rights And Contracts For Creative People Workshop
Curious about copyright, contracts and agreements?
One of the challenges we creative people face is that common knowledge of copyright is sometimes at variance with the actual law, leading to misunderstandings, infringements and confusion.
It’s essential that we talk about knowing and protecting our rights, why they exist and the cultural and financial value of our work and rights.
In this engaging, practical session, supported by Manatū Taonga Ministry of Culture and Heritage, and presented by Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ), Karen Workman will be giving us an overview of our rights as creators, building our basic understanding of Copyright and what to do if you think your work has been infringed, while Caroline Stone will shed light on what to look for in contracts and agreements, to protect and elevate the relationship between an artist and a business partner.
We will also dip into how to manage, leverage and protect your Intellectual property, discuss essential elements to include in contracts and agreements, particularly for visual artists, and what you can do if someone infringes on your copyright. Join us to rediscover effective tools you can use in your creative practice, to give you confidence in your business and help you realise the value and potential of your work.
