While this is not an official Escape event, and tickets have to be bought separately from Escape badges, it will be a lot of fun. Costumes are encouraged :-)

Performances and stories, as well as a movie offering from Lisa Stock. The Opening of the Court is free and open to everyone. This is a chance for all our attendees to meet one another, so invite everyone to come and bring their friends.

Blanc de Blanc Room: Creator Rights

Court: Courtney Lytle, Blake Sorensen

Those who would guide the fae into our realm have concerns beyond the ravenous appetites of trolls. Copyrights, legal protections, fan fictions, tributes, satire and the like may seem beyond the notice of the faerie courts, but not of human ones. Join Emory adjunct law professor Courtney Perry and intellectual property attorney Blake Sorensen for this wide-ranging discussion of rights you may not even know you have. Suitable for both legal novices and the experienced.

Rose Room: Faerie House Workshop

If a child is coming with an adult and they are making one faerie house, the child is free. We ask that you get separate tickets if each is making a faerie house or if there is more than one child per adult and they are making a house each. Workshop preference is one child per adult.
