The Roles of Intellectual Property and Diversity in the Cultural and Creative Industries
Company: IP Diversity Network
This panel is organised by the IP Diversity Network that has emerged from the Arts and Humanities Council (AHRC) UK funded project “The Roles of IP and Diversity in the creative industries: Networking South Africa and the UK” led by the University of Fort Hare and Coventry University UK. The panel discussion will engage in reflections and conversation around issues affecting the creative arts sector in general and in particular whether the legal frameworks of intellectual property (IP) and diversity and inclusion could be better calibrated to support micro creative industries in South Africa (SA) and the United Kingdom (UK) in their trade and sustainable development agendas. In addition, the panel will discuss the nature and extent to which cultural traditions influence intellectual property and the creative industries in the UK and South Africa.
The Panel is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) (AHRC) which funds world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects from history and archaeology to philosophy and languages. The AHRC also funds more contemporary research including the design and effectiveness of digital content and the impact of artificial intelligence.
