Free workshop offered on copyright for artists

The workshop is Sept. 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Selkirk College’s Kootenay Studio Arts campus, 606 Victoria St., Nelson.

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 workshop is Sept. 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Selkirk College’s Kootenay Studio Arts campus, 606 Victoria St., Nelson.

The workshop is free but pre-registration is required by calling Erin Potulicki at 250‐352‐2821
