For the last month I have been working for FREE?! No no, it hasn't been for free, as in underpaid creative labor, but rather free, as in free speech (or beer?).
FREE?! is a one day event, happening at Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam, the 29th of November. It will be a day dedicated to Free Culture, that promises to immerse the audience in Free Culture, and its many interpretations, misinterpretations, possibilities, impracticalities, hopes, dreams, disillusions that surround it.
My involvement in the project concerns the evening event, Winter Night’s Copyright Fairytale.
This peculiar event will consist on a four hour long series of lectures and performances, with several participants delivering their perspective, work, and anecdotes on free culture. Together with Nan Wang I have been working on an audio-visual interpretation of Aymeric Mansoux's A Copyright Tale, which tells the story of a creator into the world free culture. This folktale will envelope the presentations into a narrative where facts, fiction, characters and presenters mingle and establish a dialog among themselves.

Yet, this is just one of the event that will be taking place in FREE?! Check http://freeculture.info/ for more detailed information and don't forget to join us on the 29th.
