Our Youth Outreach Initiative raises awareness about the cultural, ethical, and economic implications of creative ownership – to foster greater respect for artists and the creative process.
Working with educators and experts from across the copyright spectrum, we have made a commitment to digital citizenship education. We believe that the better young people understand their own rights and responsibilities as 21st century creators and consumers, the more appreciation they will have for the value of creativity and their individual role in supporting it.
We hope to inspire students from kindergarten through college to better understand artists, the works they create, and how students can pursue creative endeavors to contribute to industries that together comprise nearly 7% of the country’s gross domestic product.
To do this, CreativeFuture has partnered with the Internet Education Foundation to promote their Copyright and Creativity for Ethical Digital Citizens educational modules and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) to include their members in our school outreach.
