PLEASE NOTE: This news was released before Finers Stephens Innocent merged with Howard Kennedy to become HowardKennedyFsi on 1 February 2013.
FSI is delighted to announce that Mark Stephens CBE has been appointed as the new Chair of the Board of Directors DACS (the Design and Artists Copyright Society), replacing Andrew Potter who steps down in December 2011.
Mark Stephens, who was instrumental in the establishment of DACS in 1984, joins the organisation at an important time as debate continues about the future of copyright, and the global recession and public funding cuts impact on visual artists. DACS’ role in helping artists to sustain their practice and livelihood is even more critical than ever.
