For emerging creatives, intellectual property is often described as “a really uncomfortable thing”. It can be stressful, overwhelming, and every situation is unique. How can we unpack this discomfort to tackle difficult IP conversations with care and respect? How might personal contexts, interests, and values play a role in advocating for the value of your work?

Join us for an interactive workshop to learn about the basics of IP in creative practice, participate in a roleplaying exercise with peers to learn from each others’ experiences, and generate a collective toolkit to embrace and navigate complexities in the grayscale.

Macy Siu is an artist and foresight strategist who is driven by expression and empowerment tied to the hyphen of in-between spaces. Her practice focuses on creating evidence-based speculative futures, soundscapes, and artifacts to imagine and drive conversations around possible inclusive futures. Macy is also a former intellectual property lawyer with a specific interest in legal design and access to justice for creatives. She is currently a board member of CARFAC Ontario, and a part of Artengine’s Digital Economies Lab.
