The CC Salon is a monthly San Francisco based event focused on building a community of artists and developers around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology.
+
{{Infobox|
 +
CC Salons are global, informal events focused on building a community of artists, developers, and creators of all kinds around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology. The first event took place in San Francisco in 2006 with the idea to replicate in other locations internationally. Since then salons have sprung up in cities [[All Salons|around the world]]. Whether you're familiar with Creative Commons or are brand new to the concepts behind it, we encourage you to check out a salon near you.
  
The format for each event is to encourage loose networking amongst participants with 2-3 brief presentations from individuals and groups developing interesting projects that relate to the Creative Commons.
+
The format for each event varies based on the location, but the overall concept is simple. CC Salons are open forums for people who are interested in the issues surrounding Creative Commons and global participatory culture. If you're interested in attending - check out the [[#Upcoming_Salons|upcoming salons]]. If your city doesn't have one - feel free to [[#Resources_for_starting_your_own_CC_Salon|start your own]]. Check out the [[#Resources_for_starting_your_own_CC_Salon|resources]] for starting your salon for extra info.

== Resources for starting your own CC Salon ==
  
=== Who ===
+
There are a few important items to consider before you start a Salon. These are by no means requirements but rather guidelines and tips that we have discovered in planning our own Salons - they should be seen as a starting point meant to spark ideas for your own Salon as they are all unique. The list format (and some of the content) is very much inspired by the [http://dorkbot.org/startadorkbot/ wonderful folks at dorkbot].
  
People interested in Creative Commons, copyright, Free Culture, Open Source, Art, Media, and Music
+
===Theme===
 +
It is important to remember that each location will have its own unique slant on the Salon format. While the Salons are meant to function generally as a way for people interested in CC to meet up and socialize, Salons can (and should) focus on a specific theme - the arts, computer programming, social networking, etc. This theme needn't be static - it can change every Salon - but it helps to get speakers who will be able to speak on similar topics.
  
=== What ===
+
===Frequency===
 +
To ensure a strong turnout, it is important to understand how often your audience is willing to meet up. Similarly, think about how many presenters and projects you can rotate through on a continuous basis. These two factors could mean a Salon happening every month, every 6 months, or even every year - each locale is different. The better you can space the Salons according to your audience and presenters, the better turn out and dialogue you will have, making the Salon more successful as a whole.
  
A local informal gathering of individuals around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology.
+
===Venue===
 +
Having the Salon in a consistent space will help ensure repeat attendance. Reach out to local art galleries, bars/pubs, and even universities to see if they can offer you a block of time to use their space for free. The space doesn't need to be extravagant and it is good to remember that a small but full space is more conducive to discussion than a large but empty one.
  
=== When ===
+
===Equipment===
 +
It is important to allow presenters the ability to showcase media - be it video, audio, slideshow, or other. Speakers and a projector aren't essential to the Salons but they will make them run much smoother. If your venue doesn't have those things on hand, ask around to your friends and co-workers. More likely than not someone will have something that will work.

===Cost===
 +
All of the CC-run Salons are free and open to the public and there is little to no money spent on additional resources. We encourage you to make do with the sparsest of budgets - in regards to promotion we are happy to [http://creativecommons.org/weblog blog] any Salons happening and [http://creativecommons.org/contact/#community CC's mailing-lists] are a great way to promote as well.
  
=== Where ===
+
===Format===
 +
CC Salons tend to be run in an open manner, allowing people to mingle and socialize as they see fit. Outside of this there are often two to three presenters who will speak to their own use of CC licenses, be it personal or for a larger organization they are part of. This is by no means a rigid guideline but rather a starting point - feel free to screen a film, hold a panel discussion, have a live music performance, or anything else that may be relevant. Most importantly, remember to have fun!

== Ideas ==
 
 
 
What ideas would be good to try out at the CC Salon? This is a good place to brainstorm and place up thoughts about small segments at the CC Salon such as mix-offs, live code workshops, demonstration of new projects, etc.
 
 
 
=== Podcast ===
 
 
 
What about a podcast of the event?
 
 
 
=== Streaming ===
 
 
 
Should the event be streamed for those who can't attend? Also, to go along with, a chat channel would work out nicely as well.
 
 
 
=== Chat ===
 
 
 
The #cc chat channel on irc.freenode.net should be used for online communication during the event. Also, it is a useful space for communication before and after the event.
 
 
 
=== Performances ===
 
 
 
Would anyone want to perform live at the event? DJs and musicians, that means you! Also, anyone doing live dance, acting, etc, that means you as well!
 
 
 
=== Open Salon Time ===
 
 
 
Similar to Dorkbot and others, it would be good to have 10-15 minutes at the end dedicated to an open mic session where people can come up to the mic and talk about their ideas/involvements.
 
 
 
=== Film Screening ===
 
 
 
Maybe rather than just have presenters, there could be some informal screening of CC licensed films along with the film makers.
 
 
 
=== Live Visuals ===
 
 
 
During the event someone or something should produce the visuals during the event through a secondary projector. More likely than not, there will be a projector in use by the presenters, so any visuals will have to be before and after the presentations.
 
 
 
=== Kiosk ===
 
 
 
Kiosk for adding names/emails to the wiki page and discussion lists. Also, another idea would be a kiosk for having paypal donate to artists, cc, and other nonprofits.
 
 
 
=== Burn Station ===
 
 
 
It could be easily done with some PCs with a database of CC licensed works. And visitors can get a "souvenir" of the Salon.
 
 
 
== Background ==
 
 
 
The Creative Commons Salon is modelled after such successful endeavours as [http://www.remixreading.org/ Remix Reading] and [http://www.dorkbot.org Dorkbot] which have helped to bring artists and developers together in the post-digital era, face-to-face.
 
 
 
While online meeting and creation are "par for the course" these days, nothing replaces face-to-face interaction and the rate of exchange that takes places from a good monthly event.
 
 
 
Also, the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salon_%28gathering%29 Salon model], which harkens back to 17th Century France is an apt model for this type of gathering which is half social and half intellectual.

CC Salons are global, informal events focused on building a community of artists, developers, and creators of all kinds around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology. The first event took place in San Francisco in 2006 with the idea to replicate in other locations internationally. Since then salons have sprung up in cities around the world. Whether you're familiar with Creative Commons or are brand new to the concepts behind it, we encourage you to check out a salon near you.

The format for each event varies based on the location, but the overall concept is simple. CC Salons are open forums for people who are interested in the issues surrounding Creative Commons and global participatory culture. If you're interested in attending - check out the upcoming salons. If your city doesn't have one - feel free to start your own. Check out the resources for starting your salon for extra info.

Resources for starting your own CC Salon

There are a few important items to consider before you start a Salon. These are by no means requirements but rather guidelines and tips that we have discovered in planning our own Salons - they should be seen as a starting point meant to spark ideas for your own Salon as they are all unique. The list format (and some of the content) is very much inspired by the wonderful folks at dorkbot.

Theme

It is important to remember that each location will have its own unique slant on the Salon format. While the Salons are meant to function generally as a way for people interested in CC to meet up and socialize, Salons can (and should) focus on a specific theme - the arts, computer programming, social networking, etc. This theme needn't be static - it can change every Salon - but it helps to get speakers who will be able to speak on similar topics.

Frequency

To ensure a strong turnout, it is important to understand how often your audience is willing to meet up. Similarly, think about how many presenters and projects you can rotate through on a continuous basis. These two factors could mean a Salon happening every month, every 6 months, or even every year - each locale is different. The better you can space the Salons according to your audience and presenters, the better turn out and dialogue you will have, making the Salon more successful as a whole.

Venue

Having the Salon in a consistent space will help ensure repeat attendance. Reach out to local art galleries, bars/pubs, and even universities to see if they can offer you a block of time to use their space for free. The space doesn't need to be extravagant and it is good to remember that a small but full space is more conducive to discussion than a large but empty one.

Equipment

It is important to allow presenters the ability to showcase media - be it video, audio, slideshow, or other. Speakers and a projector aren't essential to the Salons but they will make them run much smoother. If your venue doesn't have those things on hand, ask around to your friends and co-workers. More likely than not someone will have something that will work.

Cost

All of the CC-run Salons are free and open to the public and there is little to no money spent on additional resources. We encourage you to make do with the sparsest of budgets - in regards to promotion we are happy to blog any Salons happening and CC's mailing-lists are a great way to promote as well.

Format

CC Salons tend to be run in an open manner, allowing people to mingle and socialize as they see fit. Outside of this there are often two to three presenters who will speak to their own use of CC licenses, be it personal or for a larger organization they are part of. This is by no means a rigid guideline but rather a starting point - feel free to screen a film, hold a panel discussion, have a live music performance, or anything else that may be relevant. Most importantly, remember to have fun!

Using CC's Logos and Marks

Use of CC's logos and trademarks, even in connection with a CC Salon, is subject to our Policies. You should review those before using our logos and marks. If you are interested in using our logos and marks in ways not contemplated by that policy, or if you are interested in developing a new logo for your Salon that incorporates one of our protected trademarks or logos, please ask us first by contacting us at salon[at]creativecommons.org. You should also contact us first if you are interested in creating new swag that incorporates our logos or marks, whether or not you plan to give them away or sell them.
