More about Creative Commons in Africa

Creative Commons is beginning to expand within the African continent. Most recently, Kenya became a CC affiliate and has been shown support by a large CC community. The team has brought the ‘School of Open’ to the region and, among other projects, had planned on translating CC licenses into the local language. CC Kenya, joining as an affiliate has now made East Africa one of the most active regions for CC in Africa with affiliate teams in Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.

Creative Commons works in Africa to:

  • Create awareness about Creative Commons licensing and promote open access on the continent particularly focusing on education and development,
  • Consult individuals wanting to use Creative Commons,
  • Facilitate meetings and other events aimed at fostering collaboration and exchange between the participating groups,
  • Raise funds for transnational activities like studies, surveys and networking initiatives.
