About the event

This webinar, presented by The Space in association with Arts Council England , is for arts organisations and artists who have an interest in the rights issues that need to be covered when producing digital projects, or who may be looking at including copyright material in their digital work.

Due to popular demand we’ve asked the excellent panellists from our recent Digital Rights webinar to join us once again. They’ll give an overview of the fundamental principles and terminology of digital rights, then outline their individual specialisms and the work they do.


Then we’ll invite questions from the audience* and will deal with as many as we can. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a burning question right now, there’ll be useful advice and ideas for everyone - whether that’s knowledge about digital rights frameworks, where to go for advice, or even exploring how rights obstacles can lead to new creative opportunities**.


Rob Lindsay, Head of Programmes for The Space, will be joined by:

Lottie Gazzard
Lottie is a Director, Line Producer and Production Manager with over 30 years’ experience working in TV in the UK and abroad. She has produced live and pre-recorded shows, ranging from the BBC Proms with a multi-million budget to online streams of performances with a budget of no more than £5k.

Through her vast back-catalogue of work, Lottie has deep knowledge of the ways rights can prove unique challenges when producing digital versions of arts experiences, and how the solutions often come from how we respond to those challenges as artists ourselves.

Alex Hancock
Alex has been a Music Supervisor for over fifteen years and worked across TV and film projects including Skins, People Just Do Nothing, The Missing and Baptiste. He has advised The Space on projects where specific soundtracks were sought by artists and creative teams.
