CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SHARING IS DARING ART SHOW
Boston's Creative Commons Art Show
Harvard Free Culture seeks original & derivative work for its upcoming showcase of Creative Commons licensed artwork, a partner event to the NYU CC Art show (recently featured on BoingBoing
http://www.boingboing.net/2006/02/27/freeculture_nyu_stag.html>). We welcome ANY medium (we have projectors for videos and animation as well) that can be displayed in a gallery setting, so if you're not afraid to SHARE your art, submit! We want to make this a Boston-wide affair, so we're especially looking for submissions from awesome [d|sh]aring artists from outside of Harvard.
REQUIREMENTS: Submission of artwork with a visual component, under at least a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Sharealike license (you may choose to submit work under a more open license as well.) Essentially such a license means that others may distribute or copy your work for non-commercial purposes, must give you credit, and if they make a derivative work/remix, they must release the new version under the same license. The work need not be created for the show; you may choose to release work you've already created under a Creative Commons license.
Please see for more information on licensing.
DEADLINE: Please submit your work by *March 22, 2006* to . If submission cannot be done electronically, please email to make other arrangements. WE ACCEPT BOTH ELECTRONIC AND TRADITIONAL MEDIA!
VENUE: The show is tentatively scheduled for the week of April 10 and will be held in Cambridge, Location TBA.
HUH? What's this Free Culture thing all about?
We are a group of artists, bloggers, computer geeks, and activists that get together every week to surf the web, fight the man, and discuss the merits of tinfoil. We believe:
A healthy, vibrant culture must continually be improved and refashioned by those who live in it. This requires a thriving public domain and cultural commons that anyone can build upon or reshape. The Free Culture Movement aims to empower individuals and communities to reject mere consumption of culture in favor of participation- to actively critique, create, and innovate in media, technology, and art. To achieve this ideal, Harvard Free Culture seeks to promote open intellectual property policy and channel the power of technology toward appreciation, creation, and distribution of participatory culture. If you have even the slightest interest in the above, come check us out! We meet Wednesday nights at 9 in the basement of Thayer at Harvard (Harvard Computer Society Office). WITH FREE FOOD.

An MIT free culture group is in the works. If you're interested, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), I'd love to talk to anyone who wants to keep human culture open and vibrant.
