Free Culture Conference 2013

Students for Free Culture will be having its annual conference at New York Law School on April 20-21st!

The Students for Free Culture Conference is an annual gathering of student and non-student activists, thinkers, and innovators who are dedicated to advancing discussions on technology, law, and public policy. Through panels and keynote speakers, FCX 2013 will focus on current issues in intellectual property law, open access to educational resources, maker culture, and technology policy. Through workshops, the conference will revisit the core pillars of the free culture movement, examine the success stories from our movement, and identify new ways in which Students for Free Culture can advocate for a more free, open, and participatory digital environment.

For more information about the conference, visit the conference website.

Registration is open!

Through the generosity of our sponsors, Students for Free Culture is once again able to offset student travel costs for this year’s conference in NYC. Our first priority is to provide funding to at least one student from every active chapter in the organization – but funding is available to all student activists and leaders who would like to attend FCX2013.

If you can’t afford the cost of traveling to NYC next month, please do not hesitate to fill out this form to request travel funding. We have some money and we want to give it to you.

If you have friends at schools that do not currently have an active SFC chapter but you think they should be at the conference, please pass along this link to them, too. Sometimes attending the conference is just the spark that someone needs to get out there and start a new chapter on their campus!
