Access to Arts conference is a Summit about the open access movement with the artists of North India at Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi Gallery in Chandigarh district. The event is powered by Punjab Lalit Kala Akademy, Punjab Arts Council, the Open Heritage Foundation and the Wikimedia Commons community group. The conference features tracks on Wikimedia Commons, Creative Commons licenses and open access partnerships done throughout Wikimedia movement globally. There will be special talk about Indian and US Copyright law and a small explainer on how artists can release their work with creative commons licenses and why they should provide open access to their work. The artists would get an open opportunity to interact with the panel. Members from field of arts and GLAM Staff are invited. The event is free and open to all. The mode of communication will be in English. With this conference, we are looking forward to have an open dialogue with contemporary artists and art lovers and present to them an opportunity to broaden their horizons about the big Open movement in India and the respective role that the Wikimedia Community plays in it.
