  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

No need to register, just show up!  $10 for members of MAWA or Creative Manitoba; $20 for non-members. 

What is copyright? What rights does an artist have in the work they create? Does an artist need to register work to protect copyright? If an artist uses someone else’s work in their art, are they infringing copyright? If an artist sells work, do they still retain copyright? If someone posts a photo of an artwork online and does not identify the artist, what can be done about it? Julia Ryckman will answer these and many more questions!
