NZ Music Month - Where's All the CC Kiwi Music At?
It's May, and as anyone who doesn't live in a cave in the bush knows, that means its NZ Music Month. I've announced on GNU Social/ Twitter that all the CC music I promote for the rest of the month will be kiwi music, and I'll be adding everything I find to the documentation for the Commons Sounds project. A couple of questions for all the keen commoners out there:
* are there any CC events planned around the country to tie in with NZMM? If so, where and when, and how can we help promote them?
* if not, is there any way we can throw something together on the fly? (Can't see it happen in Ōtepoti although I'm keen as if any other Dunedinites are)
* would this be a good time to start planning some stuff for next year's NZMM? We could use this thread to brainstorm some possibilities (eg some shows by musicians who have used CC licenses to raise funds for some music specific CC ANZ projects), and maybe even do some organising together?
Brainstorm for NZMM 2018
* fundraising shows featuring artists who support CC
* Wikipedia hackathon to improve coverage of kiwi music, liaising with the NZ Music Task Force
* A CC mixtape download bundle, both for publicity, and as a way of demonstrating a CC business model while fundraising for CC ANZ.
