Art UK

Art UK is a registered charity whose aim is to connect the public with images of artworks held in public organisations. Naomi Korn Associates has been working with Art UK for some years in developing suitable internal mechanisms to research, clear and manage the rights in hundreds of thousands of images of artworks, including paintings, works on paper and sculptures. Other initiatives have included support to provide a front-end Permissions Portal for participating collections and artwork rights holders to safely assign image permissions and attach specific Creative Commons licence to their images. Thus, creating a self-serve facility for collections and artwork rights holders, substantiating their own rights management infrastructure. Specific mentoring support provided by Naomi Korn to Art UK’s Head of Copyright and Licensing has helped the organisation develop more complex projects and build internal capacity.
