The Creative Commons Global Summit is on October 3-6, 2023. We are virtually connecting to you from Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco in Mexico City with three opportunities to connect to this wonderful event from afar. Join us at a distance for a hangout with #ccsummit speakers and attendees alike. It’s a virtual campfire conversation! See below for details.

Title times are local to the conference site, scroll below to find the times adjusted to your timezones and the links to watch the sessions live or recorded if you can’t make it into the session itself.

If you’re new to Virtually Connecting, read more about us here.

You can participate virtually in any of the following ways:

  1. Active session participation: be a participant in the session and talk to the guests and other participants. To do so, see the contact information above or by leaving a comment below. One of us will contact you to get your email address, and then you will get a confirmation email a day or so before the event, and a link to participate in the Zoom session (no anonymous Zoom browsing, you must have a working Zoom account) around half an hour before the event. All you need in order to do this is to have working audio on your computer (update your Zoom software) or phone/tablet (update your Zoom app).
  2. Be a participant in the session and communicate via text chat (this will be seen by people inside the session but not those outside the session; but the virtual buddy will occasionally read out what you wrote or invite you to say it out loud)
  3. Watch the recording: watch the session recorded (again, same embedded videos above, or our YouTube channel).
  4. Become a buddy: If you’d like to join our team and help organize future events, talk to the onsite buddy.

Are you physically at the conference?

If you are attending the conference and wondering what’s for me, stop by! We would love to see you! You don’t have to appear on camera. We would love for you to come by, listen to the conversation, take pictures, and discuss the experience. Sometimes those watching and listening onsite want to jump into the conversation and appear on camera.

So, how do you find us? The key to joining up with us onsite is connecting via the Creative Commons Slack. Connecting with us onsite can be tricky because each conference treats our sessions differently – please check details for onsite location on the day.

Please note that even though we have events scheduled ahead of time, sometimes we start a little earlier than planned for various reasons; while we plan to spend around 30 minutes with those onsite, sometimes they may have to leave earlier, and sometimes they may be willing to stay longer. We embrace imperfection and spontaneity and we hope you will too, understanding the nature of hybrid connections.
