Arts Policy Under Obama is programming from Musicplus: Skill Building for Musicians. Recorded 5/16/10 at East Bay Community Foundation in Oakland, CA.
The 2009 inauguration of President Obama - coupled with Democratic majorities in Congress - meant a shift in the power dynamic in Washington, DC. How are creative industries faring so far in this administration? Join us for an artist-focused roundup of the major technology, copyright and policy issues in play at the federal level, and an assessment of the creative community's role in influencing the Obama administration's activity on arts, copyright, and broadband policy.
