During 2021–2022, CC celebrated the 20th anniversary of our founding in 2001 and the first release of the CC licenses in 2002, successfully concluding an ambitious fundraising campaign to support programs like Open Culture, Open Climate, and Open Education, and to help ensure CC’s ongoing sustainability. In November 2022, CC brought the 20th anniversary celebration to an official close with both online and in-person activities where we played this special playlist of open music, curated by Marko Roca, Head of Music at the Free Music Archive. Our thanks to Marko and all the artists in the mix — CC is contributing to these artists on FMA and we encourage you to also! The CC Global Network and our broader community are at the heart of CC’s work to support better sharing for an open commons, so we are inviting you to be a part of marking this milestone. There are several ways you can join the celebration — pick one or all!
