Tunisia: Copyright and Cultural Work Management Training
Under the patronage of the Minister of Culture, Tunisia hosted a regional training forum for cultural managers from 19th-21st June 2018. The General Directorate for Cultural Action (DGAC) organised the forum which was run by Organisme Tunisien des Droits d'Auteur et des Droits Voisons (Tunisian Organization for Copyright and Affiliated Rights) in Bizerte with the aim of empowering cultural actors and groups and expanding their capabilities with regard to maintaining ownership of literary and artistic property.
Participants took part in training sessions on the drafting of technical contracts and copyright documents and the legal limits and obligations of exhibition organisers. They also attended presentations on copyright and participated in sessions focusing on communication with traditional and electronic media and maximising public reach.
