The Creative Freedom Foundation was founded in 2008 by artists and
technologists in response to changes in copyright law and the effect these changes are having on creativity, the economy, and public rights. The CFF represent thousands of New Zealand artists including musicians, film makers, visual artists, designers, writers, & performers.
The Foundation's primary goals are:
- The education of New Zealand artists about emerging issues within New Zealand that have the potential to influence their collective creativity
- Advocacy to ensure that their views are taken into consideration, and
- The promotion and encouragement of activities that support and build the New Zealand arts community, positive relationships within that community and/or the positive wellbeing of that community.
The Creative Freedom Foundation views the internet as an opportunity
for artists in New Zealand, not a threat and, through their goals, they
seek to make sure NZ artists views are heard in this area.
