Vj Ultra was invited to the first Commons festival in Cologne Germany in 2009. The Cologne Commons Festival was held at the Kunstwerk & Gebaude 9 Koln http://cologne-commons.de/
Cologne Commons – Festival and conference for free music and free culture (Germany / Cologne)
The “Cologne Commons” is a platform for free music, netlabels and artists in general.
The goal of the two-day event, that will be held from 12th to 13th of June 2009, is to set a precise focus on issues and chances of the web, including possibilities of a “Free Sharing Culture“.
The event will include theory and practice. The conference steps into workshops, how-to’s, panels and discussions of experts. Close connected to the talks the festival will showcase talents, unknown or extraordinary musicians and VJs, that embrace the concept of the Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org/ and the chance, that the new media brings, instead of demonizing them.
Although netlabels play a central role in this years festival, it is by far not limited only to music. More generally the focus is on Creative Commons everything related to art and media – with the rise of a new cultural economy and perspectives for young artists in mind.
