CC is Turning 6! SF Birthday Party Announced!

Allison Domicone, December 1st, 2008

To celebrate six exceptional years for CC and the December 31st wrap-up of our 2008 fundraising campaign, CC headquarters is hosting a birthday bash in San Francisco! The San Francisco party joins the ranks of other global birthday parties in Berlin, Brisbane, Guatemala, Seoul, and New York. The San Francisco event will be held on Thursday, December 18th, 2008, from 9pm – 2am at 111 Minna Gallery (Map and Directions).

We’re thrilled to announce that Into Infinity, the remixable art and music exhibition produced by dublab and Creative Commons, will make one of its first “real world” appearances as a physical installation at the party. Digital renderings of the show’s visual works will be run through a software program that melds random pieces together to create new combinations. The resulting feed will be delivered to a projector and displayed against a wall to provide ever-changing visual stimuli to our partygoers. Additionally, there will be a live performance by several dublab producers and DJs, who will use Into Infinity’s sound loops as the basis for an improvisational electronic music show.

And, of course, there will be dancing! Music will be provided by DJs Ripley and Kid Kameleon, both regulars at Surya Dub in San Francisco.

Tickets will be sold at the door, but please RSVP to rsvp[at]creativecommons.org so we know you’re coming.
From 9-11pm: $15 for CC Network members and $20 for non-members. Hosted bar: beer, wine, and well-drinks (cash bar otherwise). Join the CC Network today to secure your discount!
After 11pm: $5 for CC Network members and $10 for non-members. Cash bar.

We hope you’ll join us for a fun and festive night of celebrating free culture and the future of Creative Commons! Everyone is welcome, but space is limited – so bring friends and arrive early!

Can’t make it to San Francisco or one of the other birthday party locales? No problem! We’re encouraging members of our community around the world to come up with fun and creative ways to celebrate CC’s six years: be part of the CC Video Project and make a 90-second video about why you love CC, screen a CC-licensed film, host a Salon, make a CC re-mix, design a birthday card or poster, or consider CC’s birthday an excellent occasion to eat cake! This is a time to celebrate participatory culture, creativity, and innovation – and whatever you decide to do, make sure to document it and share it with us and the world by uploading your pictures or video to flickr and tagging them “CC6.” Head over to the Birthday Party 2008 wiki page for details on the planned parties and find out how to add your own!
