Apologies for cross-posting.
I thought this might be of interest to the list. Creative Commons Aotearoa NZ is hosting a
public meeting on open culture and heritage, during the Nethui conference in Wellington
July. You don’t need to be coming to Nethui to attend. Details as follows:
Creative Commons Nethui Meetup: Open Culture and Heritage.
TUESDAY 9 July 2013, 6pm-7.15pm at NetHui 2013, Room TBC, Wellington Town Hall
Across the world, museums, galleries, archives, libraries and broadcasters— from the
in The Netherlands to ABC
Australia<http://www.abc.net.au/archives/openarchives.htm>—are using Creative
Commons licences and clear ‘no known copyright’ statements to open their collections for
greater public access and reuse.
What are some of the challenges in opening New Zealand’s publicly funded and publicly
housed culture and heritage? And what developments can we expect in the years ahead?
Join us for a wide-ranging, open discussion on copyright and Creative Commons in the
culture and heritage sector.
· Courtney Johnston, Director, Hutt City Museums
