Copyright for Artists is a workshop for artists on understanding copyright, its applications for creators, fair dealing, and fair use.

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.

The Copyright for Artists workshop was developed by the Artists’ Legal Outreach, which is a group of volunteer lawyers and law students committed to working with artists and arts organizations. ALO offers resources, workshops and clinics across BC.

Martha Rans has been working with artists in all disciplines for 25 years. She is a recognized Canadian copyright expert.

Copyright For Artists is part of Art at Work, series of professional development workshops designed for visual artists. It is presented by Public Art Richmond and Richmond Art Gallery, in partnership with City of Richmond Arts Services and CARFAC BC.

Tickets are free, but seating is limited. Please RVSP  to reserve a spot.
