At April's CC Salon SF, we will hear from three presenters showcasing their innovative international ventures and discussing how CC licenses can be used in international projects to facilitate content sharing and connectivity across borders:
* Miquel Hudin Balsa, Co-Founder of Maneno, a blogging and communication platform built to meet the needs of the Sub-Saharan blogger and writer, allowing those with limited or narrow-bandwidth internet to use a system that is lightweight and straightforward in functionality, but complex enough to allows for translation into multiple languages to reflect the diversity of the African continent.
* David Harris, Executive Director of Global Lives Project, an international collaboration of filmmakers, designers, architects, activists, and institutions to chronicle 24 hours in the life of ten individuals from around the globe, forming an innovative video installation and collaborative online video encyclopedia.
* Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, Founder and Director of Global Oneness Project,which seeks to explore how the radically simple notion of interconnectedness can be lived in our increasingly complex world by creating a "living library" of films chronicling the courageous lives of people passionate about sustainability, conflict resolution, spirituality, art, economics, indigenous culture, and social justice.
We're delighted to have our friends over at PariSoMa host us for the second time in their lovely and inviting space. Plenty of street parking is available. Please note, the space is located up two steep flights of stairs, and unfortunately does not currently have elevator access.
Light refreshments will be provided, and since we rely on the generosity of our community to keep us afloat, we’ll be accepting donations for CC at the door.
CC Salons are global events, and anyone can start one, no matter where you live. We encourage you to check out our resources for starting your own salon in your area.
