The National Free Culture Conference will take place on Saturday, May 26 at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.
We’re looking to bring together members of free culture chapters, groups working on free culture-related issues, and general supporters of free culture ideas. We’ll have speakers and presenters for the first half of the day and workshops/break-out groups for the second, culminating in a Free Culture party. The official line-up and schedule will be announced shortly, so stay tuned.
Housing is available and the event is open to the public. If you’d like to attend, speak, or help out with the conference, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our Facebook Event.
See you in Boston!
