As part of our #20CC anniversary, last year we joined forces with Fine Acts to spark a global dialogue on what better sharing looks like in action. Our #BetterSharing collection of illustrations was the result — we gathered insights from 12 prominent open advocates around the world and tasked 12 renowned artists who embrace openness with transforming these perspectives into captivating visual pieces available under a CC license.

Each month throughout 2023, we will be spotlighting a different CC-licensed illustration from the collection on our social media headers and the CC blog. For June, we’re excited to showcase “Share Freely, Openly, Like We Share Air” by Hust Wilson. The piece, licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0, was inspired by a quote from David Moinina Sengeh, Education Minister and Chief Innovation Officer of Sierra Leone and TED Senior Fellow:

“To share anything freely and openly, much like we share air, is to be alive.”
