Looking for more sources of audio/visual material in or or licenses giving similar freedom for creative (re)use.
Other than the 'classics' wikimedia,, ccsearch, openclipart,, librivox, freemusicarchive, fontlibrary, freesound

Retoot to write a list together!

For the for refugees, starting on Monday.

@wendy has some interesting content too #gamedev #licence #libre

@wendy @Olm_e That search engine is actually searching flickr for all cc images. The link I sent allows you to search digitized collections from museums and libraries specifically. Usually of higher quality.

@rra @Olm_e aha, very good.
Other entry point.

Wikimedia/pedia slurps all of these cc licenses imaged in and integrates them. I will try to look at the mechanisms..

@Olm_e cool!
That's a domain I know very little of..

A more ambiguous source is thingiverse. Ambiguous in the sense that anything goes? And the ownership of thingiverse itself .

@wendy Global Voices is a pretty awesome project who make their content available with CC-BY. It’s also pretty relevant for refugee communities I think?

“Global Voices is an international and multilingual community of bloggers, journalists, translators, academics, and human rights activists. Together, we leverage the power of the internet to build understanding across borders.”

@wendy I've been collection Open Access sources for some time.

Note: these are open access, not necessarily PD, CC, etc., but many are. Some have more restrictive "educational" licenses. (And I haven't updated the pages for a bit, so there are probably some dead/moved links, too.)

@delibrarian hey, thanks this is a very nice list. Lots of sources I did not know!
And reminders of nice projects I forgot (musopen gives interesting discussions)

@wendy omg, I can't believe none mentioned the amazing - beautiful stuck images, all #cc0 licensed...
