Have your digital use questions answered by a legal expert!

With quick pivots to digital programming due to COVID-19 pandemic-related closures, organizations have faced new challenges around presenting online. Whether it’s making archived programming available, hosting virtual fundraisers or digital classes, questions around intellectual property rights and privacy have arisen. As we head into a season that may be a hybrid of digital and in-person programming, new legal considerations surface.

Join ArtsFund’s Cultural Partners Network and legal expert, Mark Wittow (K&L Gates) on August 24, 2021 between 2-3pm to discuss important legal considerations around making cultural programming available online.

Join colleagues and peers from the cultural community across the Central Puget Sound. Interactivity is encouraged, so please come prepared with questions or topics. Live Q&A will be moderated by ArtsFund staff.
