The world’s most dynamic event on
global digital culture comes to Japan




                                  29 July - 1 August, 2008
Once a year, people from around the world
come together to talk about a free culture for all
                on the Internet
Artists, musicians, entrepreneurs,
philosophers, lawyers, activists, technologists,
educators and free-thinkers from all continents
And in this mountain of difference, there is
         one ideal that we share:
A free digital culture
A digital culture


Where creativity is compensated
A digital culture


That continues the free sharing of knowledge
  and creativity that built the first Internet
A digital culture

That allows us to see the possibilities
          before our eyes
A digital culture

That makes it possible for us to do what we
              were born to do
CREATE
Without traditional controls
that hamper the new potential of
        digital creativity
The iSummit is a celebration of that creativity
  and the power of the internet to enable
            human development
       and global cultural exchange
It is an annual exploration of the emerging
 opportunities for co-ownership, co-creation and
widespread distribution and sharing of knowledge,
       ideas and creativity in the digital age.
In 2005, the iSummit was born at the Berkman
     Center, Harvard University: birthplace of
   Creative Commons and of new ideals of Net
                politics and culture

In 2006, the iSummit moved to Rio de Janeiro,
   Brazil: a country breaking new ground in the
  development of digital cultural production as a
          sustainable community resource.

In 2007, the iSummit was held in Dubrovnik,
 Croatia - a city that has redefined freedom and
        independence throughout history

This year, the iSummit comes to Sapporo City,
  Japan - the Ideas City - host to the International
     Short Film Festival, and quickly becoming
recognised as a hub for creativity and technology.
iSummit 2008 promises to the be the most
    innovative iSummit yet - drawing from the
 expertise of independent creative communities
from around the world to produce four days of
  exploration, debate and a celebration of the
opportunities presented by the digital revolution
