About
Thinks & Drinks is a night of slightly nerdy and definitely insightful talks about anything interesting in the world.

This coming week we have talks on what it’s like to run a political campaign, how bitcoin works and Computer Vision. The talks are 10 minutes each and interactive. The talks are given by experts on their field who have a knack for public speaking.

Jumpstart Thursday, Jun. 12 2014 @ Shalom House, Ngong Road

JT June2014

The copying of designs in the craft and design sector is nothing new. In fact, the habit has become so deeply entrenched that many designers have resigned themselves to this fate- sooner rather than later.

Internationally, we witnessed the kiondo and kikoy being ‘stolen’. What could we have done differently? What CAN we do differently to protect our cultural heritage, our designs, our intellectual property?

One of the most powerful yet least understood option is copyright.

The Kenya Copyright Board [KECOBO] is the government body charged with ensuring that the rightful owner of a design enjoys the accruing benefits.

This June 12, 2-5pm, Craft Afrika and KECOBO team up to bring you an insightful discussion on copyright – what it means, what it applies to, how much it costs, other people’s copyright and how to manage it.

It will be an eye-opening, empowering discussion. You want to be there.

Entrance is free, though registration is a requirement.
