Artistik License began as a blog back in 2013, with the intention of providing artists with easily accessible legal information. The first piece published was received with a lot of enthusiasm from the creative community, who continue to support and guide the work Artistik License does as a legal and business consultancy for independent arts and artists.
Artistik License provides counsel to creative professionals, and assists them in making more informed choices about their work. It also organises artist rights education workshops and panel discussions to help artists, in an effort to make long-lasting changes to the creative economy in India.
Meet our founder
A legal professional with a deep appreciation for creative entrepreneurship and the arts, Manojna launched Artistik License in 2013, and has been working with the creative community since.
She is a graduate of the NALSAR University of Law in Hyderabad, India and the UCLA School of Law, where she specialised in Entertainment, Media and Intellectual Property Law. Manojna has worked with different organisations, within the legal, creative and entrepreneurship eco-system. Prior to founding Artistik License, she worked with one of India’s leading corporate law firms, a pioneering digital legal publishing/education platform, and a policy-research think tank. She also led the content curation team for the Construkt Festival in 2015 – a revolutionary entrepreneurship festival based out of Bangalore, India.
Manojna appreciates the need for greater dialogue between the different stakeholders of the creative economy, and is dedicated towards furthering the same through her work. She also believes in the power of strengthening community and cultural exchange, which is why she prefers to stay location-independent.
Always up for black coffee, Manojna likes to discover new music, write about all sorts of things, and obsess over science-fiction shows and movies.
