Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) holding Info Sessions

Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) has announced a new schedule of free seminars on the artists’ resale royalty scheme, to be held in all capital cities, Cairns and Alice Springs during July, August and September.

The seminars will be in Canberra on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 July at the Canberra Museum and Art Gallery, Civic Square (on London Circuit). The seminar on the 28th is from 5.30 - 7.00 pm and is for artists. On the 29th it will be held from 10.00 - 11.30am for art market professionals.

Artists and ‘art market professionals’ (art dealers, galleries, auction houses, Indigenous art centres and others involved in the business of buying and selling art) who attend these seminars will be able to find out what the scheme means for them and what they need to do to participate.

The dates, times and locations for the current sessions are as follows – anyone interested in attending should register their interest with CAL via email ( or by phoning 1800 066 844.
