Hey Fam! We are back tomorrow, Friday 31st MAY, 6-9pm at Passions Premium Restaurant in Osu Ring Way [two streets behind Country Kitchen] with an exciting session on creativity, sampling and copyright.
This month’s discussion is the follow-up to our March Talk Party which explored critical copyright information every creative entrepreneur should know. This time around, we’ve asked a number of innovative folk to join the conversation and sound off on copyright and culture jamming.

Good Copy Bad Copy is a 2007 Danish documentary film about the state of copyright and culture around the globe. The film’s main point is that creativity is under threat by stringent copyright laws. Traveling from Lagos to Northern Brazil to New York City, the film takes a closer look “between protecting the right of those who own intellectual property and the rights of future generations to create.”
Has copyright gone too far or not far enough?
Is sampling a creative art or a form of theft?
Can sampling be used to create a subversive movement – across Africa or right here in Accra?
We’re also pretty amped to screen the brilliant experimental film MI BRONI BA by Akosua Adoma Owusu.
