The University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery & the Arts Law Centre of Australia present


Copyright 101 for Artists
Wednesday 28 September 2016 - 10.30am in Lecture Theatre 3, Building I
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.


Respecting & Protecting: Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property
Wednesday 28 September 2016 - 2.30pm in Lecture Theatre 3, Building I
Are you using or creating Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artwork, dreamtime stories or language? This workshop explores the legal and cultural issues around protecting and respecting culture and heritage. The workshop is for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artists, creative and cultural workers as well as non-Indigenous participants who wish to work with ICIP.
