AWC-SB continues their series about Creating Community as Communicators in the Virtual World on Monday, October 7 with What’s a Wiki? Creative Commons a New Perspective on Intellectual Property.
Advancements in technology connect people in ways never before possible. Today we face opportunities to create, share, and remix new collective works. Who owns the rights to these new works? Do all these activities implicate the exclusive rights of the copyright owner? These questions resulted in the birth of Creative Commons.
Jane Parks, Project Manager of Creative Commons, will facilitate an exciting discussion exploring the legal sharing and reuse of cultural, educational, and scientific works. She will offer free, easy-to-use tools to harness the creativity new technologies make possible.
Monday, October 7, 5:30- 7:30 pm
Antioch University Santa Barbara, Community Hall
602 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

Jane Park, Project Manager, Creative Commons
Jane manages the School of Open, a collaboration with the Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU). A volunteer community-driven project, the School of Open offers free, online courses on the meaning and impact of “openness” in the digital age and its benefit to creative endeavors, education, research, and beyond. Participants learn how to use free technology and tools, such as Creative Commons licenses, to achieve their goals. Jane also helps creators, institutions, and companies consider and adopt CC tools, while cultivating stories that exhibit the social and commercial value of CC licenses to different communities. As a founding volunteer of P2PU, she has designed and led two online courses on creative nonfiction writing, a third on Creative Commons for K-12 Educators, and hopes to explore a fourth on Open Governance. She is based in Los Angeles, California.
