Call for speakers:

In the true spirit of creativity, the organisers are looking for a range of speakers with ideas, games, techniques or topics they’d like to discuss to get involved in shaping the day. Some ideas we have included involve: a games hack, a world cafe to showcase ideas and approaches, lightning talks or maybe something different such as a song or dance routine? Leave your inhibitions behind and come along prepared to experience something different to regular copyright events! There will even be a competition for the best idea, most creative approach to copyright education or copyright specialist of the year.

For more information on the event, or to register your interest as a speaker, please see the UK Copyright Literacy website.
