We pitched for a touring remixable art exhibition that would not only see the production and exhibition of 10 – 20 new works that (legally) appropriate from CC-licensed content, but that would also encourage exploration of the ideas of creation and appropriation in the visual arts sector.

Like the Remix My Lit project, etcc emerged because the coordinators perceived a lack of prominence of remix and open content licensing in the visual arts. While implicit and explicit appropriation is common, the visual arts community as a whole has been a slow sector in their consideration of rights management practices.
