Marina Eckersley

Dalla Lana Fellow in Global Journalism, University of Toronto

Marina has spent most of her career in the Canadian music industry working in music publishing, including most recently at Toronto-based Anthem Entertainment. She began her career in the music industry at Trebas Institute studying audio engineering, but a fateful internship at Nightingale Music coincided with Marina trying to navigate her own rights as an artist, and she realized a hidden interest in intellectual property. Marina has also completed the Artist Management program at Canada’s Music Incubator, and consults with independent artists and managers on music rights administration. Her mission is to empower creators to make informed decisions about their music rights.
