The New York City Chapter of the Content Creators Coalition is a new group united with the national CCC behind the idea that creators of cultural content need to join forces in order to ensure fairness and dignity for artists in the digital age. If the past fifteen years has taught us anything, it’s that artists cannot depend on industry professionals or journalists or fans to advocate for them—we must speak up for ourselves.
Statement of Principles:
1) We believe in an Artist’s Control Of Their Work; that it’s the right of any creator of cultural content to choose when, how, and whether their work is distributed for commercial gain, monetized with advertising, or otherwise exploited.
2) We believe in Fair Pay; the right of content creators to a fair share of the wealth our work generates.
3) We believe in Collective Representation; the right of all creators of cultural content to aggregate our power to protect our livelihoods and our art forms.
If you are a NYC area creator of cultural content and would like to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want you at our meetings and events. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
