Creative Commons Beirut Salon to be held tomorrow at Obross, Beirut!

I`m proud to announce this first Creative Commons Beirut Salon to be held tomorrow 16th April starting at 7pm in  Obross in Hamra, Beirut. With the fantastic energy and passion of people like @MayaZankoul, @Naeema , @HabibH, @MoNajem and many other musicians, illustrators, geeks, visual artists, etc, Creative Commons Lebanese community has been growing and growing during the very past few weeks with incredible results that will be highlighted tomorrow during the presentations.

Please have a look to the programme which is published on different websites

Tomorrow will be a day full of surprises, two great media organisations will make CC related announcements at the Salon and then artists will showcase their music, comics, visual works, films, etc.

We`ll run also a competition about the best and more “lebanese flavoured” CC Slogan (short message, like the 140 twitter characters!) that we`ll use in the future to promote Creative Commons activities in Lebanon. It has to be something cool, inspired by Lebanese street cultures, built up on remix words and expressions from different languages just as it is Lebanon in his everyday vibrant life.

And just as Naeema and Maya did for the beautiful poster of the Salon and image of the Tshirts remixing each other`s work.

(you can buy this cool Tshirt tomorrow to support CC Lebanon and also win it by submitting a cool slogan in pure Lebanese style)

Everybody is welcomed to join this slogan competition submitting proposals through Twitter or coming to the Salon and participating live from there.

Remember: slogan should be short, catchy, remix, street cultures, and purely Lebanese -whatever this means!-.

The list of names to be thanked is sooo long that would take ages . For the moment, I will thank again the beautiful “organising committee” that has showed that Lebanese people are not only creative and energetic but can do a perfect team work and build on sharing and cooperating.

Amazing message to the whole Arab world and the entire world.

Shukran kteer ya sabaya w shabab for this wonderful gift!
