As part of Arts Law’s 30th Birthday celebrations we are holding an online auction of high quality ethically -sourced Aboriginal artworks. The auction, which will be live from this week, will run in the weeks leading up to our gala-fundraising dinner and will conclude with a live auction at the dinner on the 3rd of September. The money raised from the auction will not only go towards Artists in the Black, our legal service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, but will also go directly into the pocket of the artists who have created these works.
Arts Law is currently seeking someone to fill the position of the Artists in the Black Coordinator.
The Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law) together with the Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand Inc (IPSANZ) and this year joined by the Commercial Bar Association, are pleased to present our annual joint seminar. This year we are privileged to have Dr Francis Gurry, Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), as our guest speaker who will speaking about “Copyright: The International Agenda”.
