PICNIC is a cross-discipline platform for creative conversation and collaboration. It's a unique festival featuring a strategic conference, complimented by hands-on workshops and matchmaking sessions.
This year, there will be a special Creative Commons workshop focusing on the Sharing and Remixing of audiovisual content, and the resulting opportunities for content owners. The workshop is jointly run by Donatella Della Ratta, Arab World Media and Development Manager, and Paul Keller of Creative Commons Netherlands.
The Workshop will feature an insight into Al Jazeera's Creative Commons activities, as well as project presentations from initiatives in Netherlands. Among these will be a presentation of Open Images -- a joint project of the Institute for Sound and Vison and Knowledgeland -- that makes availabe parts of the the collection of Sound and Vision under a free Creative Commons license. The Workshop will take place at PICNIC '09 and is open to all Conference and Festival attendees.
