“Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined.”
As you may know, Tuesday, April 26, 2016 is World Intellectual Property (IP) Day, a day celebrating the important role that creativity and artistic expression play in our cultural and economic life. This year’s theme is “Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined.”
We have been informed that President Obama will issue a formal Presidential Message celebrating our artists, our creative and innovative industries, and the importance of intellectual property in sustaining them. To further highlight the importance of the creative and innovative communities, the President is scheduled to fill out this list and share it with the world via social media on World IP Day.
The White House would like to see U.S. authors join the President by filling out the list and sharing it online using the social media platform of your choice. Fill it out by hand, take a picture, and upload it, or provide your list via video. The goal is for the globe to hear from our artists and creators on World IP Day and, with President Obama, to create a chorus of support and celebration of our artists, creators, and innovators. Authors are asked to use the hashtag #AmericaCreates to join the President in this celebration tomorrow.
