With Mafalda Sebastião and Agatha Bulhão

Culture professionals aim at making works of an artistic nature reach the public. This means that they have to manage access to them with respect for the norms of copyright.

A balance needs to be kept between copyright (which aims to protect the authors and their work) and the fundamental right of access to culture. Consideration must also be given to the opportunities and limitations presented by new technologies and, especially, the social media. This has become even more clear and urgent with the pandemic and the rush to make artistic content available digitally.

This course aims to provide basic knowledge and useful tools in order to achieve the right balance.

Target audience

Artists and culture professionals in museums, theatres, orchestras, cultural centres, art galleries, archives, libraries.
