In only three weeks (10.-12. 6. 2010) until the second “Cologne-Commons“-Festival will take place in Cologne (I am involved in the organizing team). The conference and festival focuses entirely on Creative Commons: what to expect from, how to deal and how to work with that licencse and the free content / culture resulting from it. This time we managed to have a two-day conference with panels and talk from experts, a two-day music festival and a movie night. Some topics of the conference are future of publishing-media, what about the “non-commercial” attribute in the CC-NC licence, upcoming do-it-yourself Robotics and a special feature with the creators of Netaudiofestivals all over Europe.

At the two-day music-festival, we will showcase artists, that strongly use Creative Commons to promote their works (or that work with Creative Commons in other ways). We tried to get a whole range of different artistic flavours. That’s why not only techno-artist come to play, but also artists from other musical directions, whether it be pop, live-improvisation, experimental or lounge music. To get an idea of the musical range, you can have a listen of the Cologne Commons Compilation Vol. 4, we released several weeks ago, featuring Creative Commons music. (Uh, I compiled the compilation by the way, and also made the artwork)


This year we will have a movie-night as well. At a cinema we will show Creative Commons based movies, that got it’s own unique way of telling stories. Don’t miss the opportunity, to see them at the “big picture”.

All details at the Cologne-Commons webpage. If you pre-order your ticket right now, you will get a surprise bag full of goodies!
