Celebrate Human Creativity Event

In mid-November we headed back to D.C. for our second round of in-person visits with offices and committees on the Hill to continue our advocacy work for artists in the space of generative AI. It was another really great full two days of meetings. We also got to host a really great event with the Human Artistry Campaign at the RIAA Headquarters, where we got to showcase the different talents of our community and human creativity in general. It was well attended with a mixture of stakeholders and Hill staffers, and we feel it was a great way to highlight the artistry and industries we are all fighting for.
