Our team is committed to helping the communities we support to grow and thrive through everything we do. As specialists in copyright, data protection and licensing we help businesses, organisations and individuals manage rights, simply. Although training is one of the key ways we help educate these sectors in information law, we understand that confidence boosting, talent building and support takes many forms – not just training. We aim to actively support our community by presenting at conferences and events, developing free copyright and data protection resources and leading lobbying efforts on behalf of the sector for better copyright and privacy laws. We also provide mentoring and business development opportunities through our Virtual Artist in Residence Programme, which forms part of our community engagement activities.
Supporting Lobbying Activities
Naomi Korn Associates supports the work of LACA (Libraries and Archives Copyright Alliance) through secretarial help, contributing to campaigns and lobbying activities. As Chair, LACA (2012 – 2015) Naomi Korn headed up extensive Government lobbying efforts on behalf of the cultural heritage and library sectors, resulting in new copyright legislation favourable to the public sector. Naomi Korn Associates is proud to continue to voice the needs our sector to Government to enable better access to important cultural heritage assets.
Virtual Artist in Residence Programme

We are delighted to announce that Claire Parker has been selected as our new virtual artist in residence. Claire is a figurative artist. She reached the final of BBC One’s ‘The Big Painting Challenge’ and recently studied on the Royal Drawing School’s Drawing Intensive programme. Currently searching for new ways to develop, she aspires to make work that is both defiant and vulnerable, finding meaning in everyday scenes and objects.
Claire’s residency will run for three months, during which time she will be mentored by Naomi. She will be providing updates about her development through our website. Her portfolio is available here https://claire-parker.weebly.com/
The Virtual Artist in Residence Programme is part of our community engagement work, designed to assist artists by providing them with free access to our consultancy services. The programme supports all types of content creators, including performing artists, visual artists, musicians, photographers, fashion designers and writers, as well as professionals in the arts who are starting out in their careers. The aim of the programme is to help artists gain a better understanding of how they can use their IP rights to build their businesses, the ways they can protect their creative works, how to identify when it is possible to use certain content and how to attribute it correctly. The programme offers mentoring support by Naomi Korn worth up to £1000 to each successful Virtual Artist in Residence.
As the programme develops, we will be featuring on our website some of the images and films of the works created by our Virtual Artists in Residence.
