Art Knows No Borders

Bombardirovka

Cameron Parkins, November 19th, 2008

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Art Knows No Borders, an event that was both a fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders and a release party for Bombardirovka, a book written by Crystal Allen Cook in 2004 while she was in Armenia on a Fulbright Scholarship. The novel is a work of fiction that, in the words of Cook, functions “to observe, up close, how the past, not necessarily even our own personal past, lives on the actions and bodies of people living in the present.”

Bombardirovka is free to download and released under a CC BY-NC-SA license, meaning it can be re-used and adapted in any way as long as it is non-commercial in intent, shared under the same license as the original, and Crystal Cook is properly attributed. Check out the Share Novel page on Bombardirovka‘s website in the coming weeks to find more about interesting reuse opportunities ahead.

Tonight in Los Angeles: CC at Art Knows No Borders

Eric Steuer, November 18th, 2008

If you’re in Los Angeles tonight, visit Cameron Parkins, who will be representing Creative Commons with a booth at Art Knows No Borders (see this Flavorpill write-up for details). The fundraising event for Doctors Without Borders will include art, music, videos, and more. Cameron will be on hand to answer questions about Creative Commons and make the case for why you should also contribute to CC’s current Help Build the Commons support drive.
