Q&A On Starting a New Chapter

What is the best way to find new members?

  • All depends on the atmosphere of the school
  • Look for people who may already be interested
  • Contact EVERYONE
  • Facebook
  • Flyering

What's the best way to explain Free Culture to potential members?

  • Find a strong starting point, like an existing point of interest (Open Source, downloading music, blogging, etc.)
  • Teach by example (CC license creative works, writing/distributing free software, showing public domain films, etc.)

What happens at a typical Free Culture campus meeting

  • All depends on the school
  • Play to the interests of the group (If artsy - creative works, if technical - free software, etc.)
  • Show presentations (Lessig perhaps), hold lectures (RMS' speeches maybe) or debates, etc.

Has anyone contacted their college radio station? With what success?

  • Hasn't really been done yet, however, it would be very beneficial.
  • Play CC licensed music, illegal art, just about anything that demonstrates Free Culture.

How to avoid student apathy?

  • Keep participants involved!
