The 'remix' has become one of the most powerful tools of the digital age. But the legal barriers to taking an established image or concept and mixing it up for a fresh take have become a hurdle for creativity - leaving those with the most power and wealth the only ones who are able to take the legal risk.
'Remix Nation' is the title of the first ccSalon in Jozi. It's about celebrating cultural pioneers in South Africa who are pushing the boundaries of the digital world and recognising how important legal remixing is to building a vibrant creative industry in South Africa.
Bring your USB Flash Disk along! Content will be made available by the presenters to be downloaded for your remixing enjoyment!
