DIGITAL | Social Media and Your Arts Practice

Do you use Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Tumblr or a website? Putting your copyright and your ideas online is an opportunity that can backfire spectacularly if your work is infringed. This session covers some of the important “legal side” of harnessing social media to benefit you and how to protect your work, including delving into the fine print of those platforms.

Come along if you are a creative freelancer, an established practitioner or run an arts organisation. Curious hobbyists, recent graduates and emerging creatives are also welcome to attend!

This workshop is open to anyone who lives, works, studies or plays in the City of Ryde.

Once you’ve registered for this event, you will be able to access information about how to login and access the webinar by viewing the online event page. You’ll also be sent reminder links from Eventbrite prior to the workshop.

You’ll need access to a stable internet connection and a computer, laptop or tablet to participate in the workshop. We don’t recommend using a phone due to the small screen size.
