Arts Festival Art Walk

North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey announces an Intellectual Property (IP) workshop for the Arts Community to occur on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from 1:00pm - 5:30pm at the Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms, SC. The event is set to attract artists, authors, journalists, script writers, singers/song writers, musicians and others working in, and managing the arts.

Highlights of the workshop will cover: the creation and protection of copyrights, the realities of royalties, marketing, setting financial goals and structuring agreements. The program will feature a mix of national and state leaders and their success stories, as well as provide the opportunity for artists to interact with state and local entertainment industry business leaders and executives. The cost of $65 per person will cover the half-day workshop registration and reception that follows.

Mayor Summey maintains active support of the regional group. He stated, “The collective mix of co-producers, who have stepped forward are vital partners in the event’s success. Bringing focus to the knowledge of Intellectual Property will help build a stronger arts and entertainment community with more opportunity for commercial success and prosperity.”

IP deals are art forms in their own right, the structuring of deals in the arts and entertainment industry can be unique and creative. Workshop participants will see that creativity extends to the business aspects of their talents, learning to realize value from their creative works and how to market that value.
