For some time we have been planning a seminar to deal with the copyright/intellectual ownership issue. We are pleased to report it is happening in September.
Key presenter is local lawyer, Virginia Nichols, who is well qualified in this area. We are extending an open invitation to anyone interested in attending. Christchurch Art Gallery has generously allowed the use the Phillip Carter Family Auditorium at no cost and they are advertising the event in their ‘ What’s On’ publication. Art Beat is sponsoring advertisements and Warren Feeney is interviewing Virginia for an article. The following is the advertisement that is being sent out by the Christchurch Art Gallery:
Arts Canterbury present a seminar by local IP lawyer Virginia Nichols outlining the legal protection for visual arts, erasing myths, and providing a framework for commercialisation. Nichols, Senior Associate at Saunders and Company Lawyers, will provide insight into the laws that protect artistic works, followed by an opportunity to ask questions. No prior knowledge required.
Arts Canterbury’s mission is to foster appreciation of the visual arts in Canterbury and to provide support to artists who create art. Committed to profiling art galleries and artists in Christchurch and districts, it is an incorporated charitable organisation, governed by an elected executive committee whose membership is currently made up of artists, business and community representatives from Canterbury Districts and Christchurch.
Wednesday 11 September, 6pm
Phillip Carter Family Auditorium
This will be a major event.
A wide range of Christchurch people will attend.
We want all our members to be there to promote Arts Canterbury and our Artists of Canterbury Guide.
