Question Copyright runs an Artist-in-Residence Program to assist artists in creating and releasing works under free licences — especially artists who go out of their way to encourage other artists to do the same.
Our first and current Artist-in-Residence is Nina Paley, who certainly meets all of those qualifications! You can read more about her here and at her home site, ninapaley.com.
Having released the widely-acclaimed film Sita Sings the Blues under a free Creative Commons ShareAlike license (and with financial support from many fans via our Sita Distribution Project), Nina is now working on her next animated film, Seder-Masochism:
If you’d like to support Nina in her work, you can do so by donating to the Artist-in-Residence Working Fund program here. All donations directed toward the Working Fund support the creation and distribution of new works of art by our Artist-in-Residence, under licence terms that respect everyone’s freedoms to copy, share, show, and extend the work. Please note the following before donating:
- Question Copyright is not responsible for the content of this work nor any other produced by our Artist-in-Residence, is not involved in artistic decisions, and is not a copyright holder in the work.
- Question Copyright does not guarantee the timeliness or even the completion of any particular work of art.
- Question Copyright determines, in consultation with its Artist-in-Residence but ultimately at its sole discretion, how funds donated to the Artist-in-Residence Working Fund will be used. We ensure that all uses of funds are fully compatible with and in support of our organizational mission (which includes, but is not limited to, distribution of high-quality works of art under free licenses).
