There are too few nonprofit organizations like CC fighting for the digital commons – support our vital leadership with an end of year contribution. Donate today!
On 27 July 2023 we hosted the first webinar in our new Open Culture Live series. In this session about the basics of Open Culture, we led a presentation that answers some of the key questions for beginners hoping to understand more about Creative Commons, and how we work closely with the cultural heritage sector to support the open sharing of digital collections. In this session we answered some basic questions including:
- What is Creative Commons?
- What is Open Culture?
- Where can you find CC licenses out in the world?
- How can you get involved in the CC Open Culture movement?
In the next episodes of the series we will be inviting panelists to speak about some other topics important to the Open Culture landscape including: Decolonization, Indigenization and Restitution; Open Culture & Artificial Intelligence; and Respectful Terminologies & Changing the Subject, and more.
