• outline the range of different elements of IP involved in artistic content
• share insights into different approaches to securing and clearing rights
• develop delegates’ understanding of the issues and potential solutions to rights clearances

Secondly the video from the Who Owns It seminar at FACT on the 12th June is now available to consume online. With talks by Ben Prangell a lawyer from Shipley IP and Joscelyn Upendran a lawer from Creative Commons UK. 

 Liverpool-Arabic-Arts-FestiLiverpool Arabic Arts Festival, the only festival of its kind in the UK, returns to the city from 6 - 15 July after a record 10th year in 2011.

City Soundscapes: A soundwalk

Written by

mnth6_swalk_200px

Refresh your Ears with a City Centre Soundwalk starting at the Bluecoat. 

“When was the last time you went somewhere just to hear the sounds there? Whether experienced as private meditation or as collective silence SOUNDWALKS refresh your ears and reset your sensual awareness to where you are, live or work"

A soundwalk is a practice: it is walking without talking, focussing on the sound around, focussing on being there rather than talking about it. The Listening Room takes you to undiscovered places: means of transport, your senses.

This coming Saturday 9th June 2012 Liverpool Acoustic will be hosting a relaxed event featuring mainly open mic with a couple of booked guests thrown in for good measure. It’s all taking place in the View Two Gallery’s top floor performance space from 1.00pm to 4.00pm and is free to attend.

Musicians wanting to take part in the open mic can just turn up on the day – the spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The gallery opens at 12.00pm and closes at 5.00pm.
