Mon­treal-based copy­right col­lec­tive SODRAC (The So­ci­ety for Re­pro­duc­tion Rights of Au­thors, Com­posers and Pub­lish­ers in Canada), in­vited for­mer Inuit Art Foun­da­tion Pres­i­dent Mat­tiusi Iyaituk to present at the World In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s (WIPO) day of round­tables in Geneva, Switzer­land, in May 2017. The round­tables, co-or­ga­nized by the In­ter­na­tional Con­fed­er­a­tion of So­ci­eties of Au­thors and Com­posers, brought to­gether artists from around the world to dis­cuss copy­right and artist re­sale rights.

Iyaituk’s par­tic­i­pa­tion at the WIPO marks an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity for Inuit artists’ voices to be in­cluded in th­ese global con­ver­sa­tions.
