The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (www.aiti-kace.com) 
in collaboration with the Association for Progressive Communications 
(www.apc.org) invites you to a special information session entitled:

'What can Creative Commons and Open Content do for Africa?'

WHAT? Creative Commons is a non-profit organization based in the United 
States, but with volunteers from across the world, that aims to increase 
the public domain of knowledge and creative content that is available for 
others to build upon and share.

With over 4 million works available on the internet under Creative Commons 
licences, the movement is being heralded by countries around the world as a 
new model for copyright in the 21st century.

African musicians, artists, creators, authors, educators and organizations 
are starting to discover the possibilities of using Creative Commons to 
distribute their work, learn by collaborating with others and grow their brand.

Come and see if open content licences could work for you.

WHEN? Tuesday, 1 February, 4-6pm

WHERE? The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT, PMB State 
House, Accra, Ghana (see http://www.aiti-kace.com/contact/direction.asp for
