Students for Free Culture is intellectually sponsoring the Innovate/Activate unconference on IP and activism at New York Law School on September 24-25. This unconference is bringing together a bunch of student groups, academics, and activists to discuss successes and give feedback on future IP activism. Basically, it seems awesome.
1) We Want a Speaker for the IP Activism Success Panel - If you want to speak on the panel on IP activism successes—if you've participated in some sort of project that has seen success in something IP related, preferably SFC-related too—let me know. Or, if you know of someone, preferably a student, who has done something awesome in the realm of IP activism who you think should speak, give us your suggestions!
2) We Want Speakers for the Unconference - If you want to represent Students for Free Culture (or even just go as yourself) and speak about activism, free culture, the free culture movement, the different events we've had, the different successes and failures we've had, the skills and best practices and obstacles we've come across... let us know! You'll get to speak alongside a bunch of really cool folks, and you'll get to represent us! Heck, this might even be me if I'm free that weekend. (We can have more than one person too!) Strongly consider this if you're in or close to the New York City area, and even if you're not, we can work with the Innovate/Activate folks to help with travel funding.
3) We Want Folks to Attend! - If you'd like to attend the conference, you should! The lineup looks great, and we as an organization could both learn a lot from and teach a lot to the other guests. Registration is $50, but they're willing to work out aid and travel grants to student activists who need it. If you're considering going, it'd help if you let me know, so I can relay numbers to them (and they can allocate as much $ as possible).
So reply if any of these options interest you. It's an awesome way to get to speak at a conference, represent us, and learn a whole lot of information and tactics to make the whole free culture movement a more effective, powerful, important force.
