#Open

The Open Source Movement is not related only to software issues, but it also promotes legitimacy, openness, sharing and the re-use of coding, content (texts, music, films, information, data, files) and knowledge. Furthermore, it introduces us to a world of a different value system. Creative Commons licenses, the most popular open licensing system, offer to creators the ability to legally distribute their work as they choose.

Creative Commons Greece in collaboration with Frown and with the support of Greek Free / Open Source Software Society (GFOSS) organize a two-days festival on the 7th and 8th of December at Frown. The #Open, Creative Commons in Greece festival addresses both the public and the creators through workshops, round tables and performances by Greek creators, who work with Open Software, Open Licensing, Open Hardware, and belong to the Open Source Movement.

Key concepts that will be developed during the festival:

  • the notion and the importance of Open Content

  • new media and the possibilities offered on Intellectual Property, Digitization and Distribution

  • Open Software/ applications in contemporary sound and video production

  •  Creative Commons licences and the concept of Intellectual Property in contemporary production

  • Performances and presentation on works of Greek artists that implement Open Software and Open Licensing

Timetable:
