Building Conversation concluded 2022 with a radical choice for collectivity and participation. We celebrated 10 years of Building Conversation with our book The Scripts. Making our work was a first step in our journey towards a more collective way of working together.
We recently took a new step in this: several works including Conversation without Words, Digital Silence and Parliament of Things are now licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. This means that from now on everyone is free to share, copy, and redistribute the work in any medium or format -and to adapt, remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially.
CC is an international nonprofit organization that empowers people to grow and sustain the thriving commons of shared knowledge and culture. They advocate for better sharing: sharing that is contextual, inclusive, just, equitable, reciprocal, and sustainable. They developed the first version of the CC-license in 2002. The license now offers a standardized way to give anyone permission to use creative work under copyright law – from individual creators to large institutions.
A well-known cultural institution that has licensed much of the work in their collection under a CC-license is The Met in New York (USA). This means that, for example, Vincent van Gogh’s image of Wheat Field with Cypresses is free to use.
By licensing various of works of Building Conversation in this way, we invite you not only to participate in our work, but also to create and grow yourself.
