Hey everyone, I had a bit of an interesting idea recently. We should have our own Libre Culture Lemmy Book and/or Film Club! The rules are quite simple.
Any content we choose to discuss must be either in the public domain or must have a license that’s approved for free cultural works.
Every three months, we vote on a new film or novel to read, or a collection of short stories that are about the length of a novel combined. Other media could be allowed as well. Downvoting suggestions isn’t allowed, unless the suggested content is inappropriate.
I can’t wait to see how this’ll go! Please let me know what you guys think of this idea, and let’s begin voting in this comment section what we’d like to watch/read in March!

When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”
Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
