CFP: Festival of Derivatives
Submission deadline: November 15, 2022
December 7, 2022
Vulnerable By Design
Copies and derivatives are everywhere. Culture would not be without people duplicating, adapting and creating ripoffs of existing material. Yet at the same time paywalls and extractive licensing schemes do much work to block off copying. And somehow certain works are still labelled ‘original’, and it’s generally only those supposed ‘originals’ that get prized. How do we move on from here? The Festival of Derivatives celebrates all things original and copy.
The Festival of Derivatives calls for lightning presentations to celebrate all things original and copy.
We’re seeking short (5–10 mins) presentations:
- Original presentations on anything to do with originality, copying, plagiarism, and derivation.
- Copies of (fragments of) existing material on any topic related to the festival theme. Please ensure the material holds an open source or creative commons CC-BY license, or is in the public domain.
- Derivatives of existing texts on any topic related to the festival theme. Please ensure the material holds an open source or creative commons CC-BY license, or is in the public domain.
