CREATe will participate in the AHRC’s Creative Economy Showcase Event on March 12th 2014 with a demonstration stand and breakout session.
The exhibition stand will include an interactive installation of the Copyright User Portal, a multimedia education resource aimed at helping media workers and creators understand copyright. A joint collaboration between CREATe and Bournemouth University, the Copyright User Portal consists of videos, interactive tools, subject resources, and FAQs. The resources are meant for everyone who uses copyright: musicians, filmmakers, performers, writers, visual artists and interactive developers. Our goal is to inform creators about how to protect their work, how to license and exploit it, and how to legally re-use the work of others.
The breakout session will explore the experiences of Supporting Creative Business: Cultural Enterprise Office and its Clients, a one-year Creative Economy Knowledge Exchange project, which began in April 2013. It is focused on the Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO), a small support agency, focused on cultural micro-businesses, based in Glasgow but with a wider Scottish remit. CEO is partly funded by the Scottish Government through Creative Scotland and is engaged in offering advice and information and running events, as well as tailored programmes, for creatives. An overview of the project will be followed by a discussion with Deborah Keogh, the Cultural Enterprise Office’s Director.
