CC Salons are global gatherings for people in the CC community to come together to learn and share about interesting projects that involve Creative Commons licenses or focus on ideals of free and participatory culture. The SF salon takes place every two months.

For February's salon, we're thrilled to have the entire CC staff under one roof, coming from as far as Japan, Boston, and Berlin, to speak about what they've been up to internationally and in the realms of science, culture, and education. Whether you've been a fan of CC from the start or you're new to the world of free culture, this salon is not to be missed.

The salon will be held on Wednesday, February 11, from 7-9pm. Light refreshments will be served, and donations will be taken at the door to support CC.

From 7-8:15pm, we'll have brief presentations from:
Mike Linksvayer, Vice President
Eric Steuer, Creative Director
Catharina Maracke, Director, Creative Commons International
John Wilbanks, Vice President, Science Commons
Ahrash Bissell, Executive Director, ccLearn
Joi Ito, CEO

At 8:15pm, we will open the floor for questions and discussion.

Come meet the members of CC's fabulous staff for a fun-filled evening of presentations, conversations, and mingling. We hope to see you there!

Note that unlike previous CC salons in SF, this venue is not at all wheelchair accessible, up two steep flights of stairs.


Raines - thank you for pointing this out. It's unfortunate that our new venue isn't wheelchair-accessible, and we regret any inconvenience this causes anyone. We needed a new space for our salon and the folks at PariSoMa graciously offered to provide their co-working space to us free of charge, and since we're a nonprofit organization, having a hosted space is vital to be able to continue holding salons for our community. If anyone has a venue that is wheelchair-accessible and can be offered for free, please send suggestions to salon[at]creativecommons.org.


PLEASE NOTE: There is in fact wheelchair access at PariSoMa - there is a freight elevator, so if anyone is in need of an elevator to get to the space, please buzz up when you arrive and let them know. Thank you.


I am sorry to inform everyone that our elevator is currently not in service. We are working on a solution to the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.
