UKZN School of Arts Host the World Intellectual Property Day with Creative Performers, Speakers and Entrepreneurs amongst the student body and alumni

As we approach World Intellectual Property Day, the School of Arts in association with UKZN InQubate is thrilled to announce a special celebration in honor of this occasion. Our focus will be on Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, highlighting the crucial role of intellectual property in advancing global health initiatives. We are honoured to welcome Amina Suliman, a distinguished partner at Adams & Adams, as our keynote speaker for the event. With over 15 years of experience in intellectual property law, Advocate Suliman brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. Her insights into trademark and copyright law, trademark portfolio management, enforcement, and more will provide valuable perspectives on leveraging intellectual property for societal benefit. The performers that will be featured in the event will present original compositions showcasing their Intellectual Property through music, dance and creative expressions. At the event we will also sign-up interested students for the upcoming Entrepreneurship in the Arts Program that will kick-off in May as part of the Wadhwani Foundation Ignite Program
