Free Culture Ireland

Note from Kevin: I know a number of artists on the list here are interested in promoting Free Culture. #CultureHackIE touches on so many issues at the heart of the Free Culture movement. As Free Culture in Ireland is still very much in its infancy I would like to suggest running #CulturehackIE as a Free Culture Ireland event. For those wondering what I'm on about and to put you at ease Free Culture Ireland has no fromal organisation it is really just a loose network of artists which includes Alan, Scott myself and a few others. We have a twitter account and a mailing list for FC related news and discussion!forum/free-culture-ireland I would really like for this to be the very first Saor Cultur Eire event but I also recognise that the idea for CulturehackIE has evolved here quite naturally so if people prefer to stick with it as it is I will respect that too.
