Culture, Creators and Media Makers

What policies are necessary for creators, like musicians, to continue working? This panel brings together representatives of the independent creative sector to ask tough questions, challenge misconceptions and orient us toward the policies that will protect creativity in today’s economy. How can we reconcile an open Internet and freedom of information with creating fair, equitable and sustainable compensation structures for artists? What policies are necessary for creators to continue working? How can we create policies that invest in cultural production? How do we ensure the new media ecosystem benefits everyone — not just those who have corporate patrons?
