Are you a writer, musician, film maker or visual artist? Or maybe you
work as a manager, promoter, or executive in the music, publishing,
film/TV or visual arts industries? Whether you are creative, a
creative entrepreneur, or working at any level in the creative
industries, you'll have seen, or experienced, how the internet is
'changing everything'. You'll probably have heard that the web is
killing culture and your industry along with it. But the internet
creates exciting new ways to distribute and promote creative works and
should be seen by the creative industries as an opportunity rather
than a threat.
Free culture - giving versions of creative works away, and even
allowing others to copy, distribute, sample or create derivative works
from them - is at the heart of these new opportunities. This approach
seems alien to many in the creative world who assume that free culture
cannot generate income, but a freer attitude to cultural distribution
will help you connect with a new audience, to develop a more engaged
audience and even to make new business connections.
The Creative Business in the Digital Era seminar, presented by Suw
Charman, will help you understand the opportunities presented by open
IP (intellectual property) and how being open should be a central part
of your creative business model.
