Presented in partnership by Capture Photography Festival, the Digital Tattoo Project, and UBC Library.
Sharing media digitally is easier and more necessary for artists than ever—think Flickr and Instagram. However, as an artist, navigating the maze of online licencing, ownership, and personal representation, especially in the age of social media, can be confusing.
To cut through the confusion and create a path for themselves, artists need tools. Tools can be as simple as asking the right questions to learn what you need to know, like: What is a licence? How does what I share shape my digital identity? How can open sharing be beneficial for my art?
This facilitated workshop will work through these questions, offer definitions, and give attendees the tools to learn how to raise the right questions to inform their digital identity and representation online. We hope participants will walk away with a firm sense of what copyright is, how it applies to their work, and what questions they should ask when posting their artwork online to shape their digital identity and connect with others.
This presentation was developed by UBC Library and the Digital Tattoo Project. It is supported by the Digital Rights Community Grant Program, a partnership between Digital Justice Lab, Tech Reset Canada, and Centre for Digital Right.
