Mentoring Artists for Women's Art: Artist Boot Camp: Introduction to Copyright for Artists, January 23

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

7-9pm

MAWA, 611 Main Street

Instructor: Julia Ryckman

$10 for members of MAWA or Creative Manitoba; $20 for non-members. No need to register, just come.

What is copyright? What rights does an artist have in the work they create? Does an artist need to register work to protect copyright? If an artist uses someone else's work in their art, are they infringing copyright? If an artist sells work, do they still retain copyright? If someone posts a photo of an artwork online and does not identify the artist, what can be done about it? Julia Ryckman will answer these and many more questions!

Co-Presented by MAWA & Creative Manitoba
