What has CCANZ been up to?
Because some of our funding runs July to June, I tend to think of CCANZ’s year starting on 1 July. So, to celebrate the new year, I thought I’d share some of what we’ve been up to over the last twelve months:
Talks & Workshops
Over these twelve months, CCANZ gave fifty-two talks and workshops. This included twenty-seven to schools, thirteen to Universities and CRIs, two to the data community, three to the culture and heritage sector and seven to non-profits and NGOs.
On 8 August 2012, we launched our new website (the one you’re on). From this date to 30 June, we posted seventy-seven times. We announced events, blogged, hosted a bunch of guest posts for Open Access Week and, of course, published case studies of Creative Commons users.
From 1 July to 30 June, we published twenty-four case studies. The breakdown here was a little different than our talks and workshops: we published three case studies on schools, two on universities or CRIs, four on open data, three in the GLAM sector, three on non-profits or NGOs and nine on Creative Commons artists.
We wrote, designed and distributed 12,000 A3 posters, 4,000 Free to Mix guides and 1000 A2 Creative Commons posters.
- Working with DigitalNZ and the National Library to organise Mix & Mash 2013

- Featuring in the Education Gazette and PPTA news
- Publishing twelve pieces on OA during Open Access Week 2012
- Taking part in conferences like NDF, the Creative University, KiwiFoo, Open Research and two great Nethuis
- And, of course, securing a partnership with InternetNZ!
There’s plenty I’ve left out, so if you want to learn more, check out our wiki, join our email lists (the community list and the general list) and follow us on Twitter. A big thanks to everyone who has helped us out in the last twelve months (there are plenty of you!). Here’s to a busy twelve months!
