About the Event
The Nelson & District Arts Council's Rural Artist Support Workshops provide an opportunity for local artists to better their business practices, with invaluable education that artists can often have difficulty accessing. It offers tools that artists rarely take advantage of, and at zero cost. By strengthening the knowledge base of our local artists, we are empowering them with skills that will be beneficial to the entire community.

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.
Zoom link will be emailed the night before
