Is creativity in the code or is the code creative? Are you an artist, a revolutionary, an owner? Questions of ownership permeate our culture – sample a sound, claim the East Van sign, remix a logo. Whether you’re an artist playing with images, a coder or an activist at some point you’ve probably asked yourself whether what you are doing is legal. On September 8 please join us at the W2 Atrium (SFU Woodward’s) when some dancers, artists, even a lawyer or a few, Laura Murray (musician, creator, academic, mother and founder of faircopyright.ca and co-author of Canadian Copyright: A Citizen’s Guide) talk about copyright, the future of art making, and open art. Most details on aro.artistslegaloutreach.ca and newformsfestival.com.
