Proposed participation[edit]

On the Sep 16, 2014 - Sep 17, 2014 Creative Commons Korea (CC Korea) has organized the CC Asia Pacific Regional Meeting & CC Korea International Conference 2014. On the following days there will be some other events as well. I am the public lead of the Creative Commons Bangladesh ( and going to attend these events. Being the lead of a CC jurisdiction i got a waiver on the event registration. I will also get a grant which will cover the round trip travel cost. But there are some other costs like the accommodation, food, transport and other costs for which i am applying for this grant.

Along with my involvements with Creative Commons, i also contribute to a number of communities. I am one of the founding members of Wikimedia Bangladesh, core team member of Open Knowledge Foundation Bangladesh, founding member of Bangladesh Open Source Network and so on. Recently i also get the fellowship from the Institute for Open Leadership.

On this regional meeting, all the jurisdictions of this region will show their progress and upcoming plans. CC Bangladesh has just started and there are a lot of upcoming events and activities listed in the future plan. Many of them will be organized with the Wikimedia Bangladesh as well. All the details are available the CC Wiki ( So it would be a big opportunity the meet the other affiliates of the same regions. There will be a lot to learn form them. Many of the affiliates are mostly dependent on and/or working together with the Wikimedia communities.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

  • I will present the future plan and progress of the Creative Commons Bangladesh
  • Will be informed about the other jurisdictions of the Asia-Pacific region
  • Participate on the planning sessions where we will discuss, who we can expand the CC community and work with more affiliates
  • Discuss the lesson learning and previous experience on working with the wikimedia projects, like Wiki Loves Monuments, other GLAM project and so on
  • Meet the local Wikimedia community

Budget breakdown[edit]

  • Travel (round trip airfare from Dhaka to Seoul): USD 500 (Total 1000USD, 500USD will be paid by the CC Korea)
  • Accommodation: 835 USD (Standard room in the suggested hotel in Seoul. There is a chance to get a discount but not confirmed yet. Standard price 167 USD per night x 5 night)
  • Local Transport : 100 USD (5 day including the airport to hotel 2way cost)
  • Food: 250 USD (50 USD x 5 day)
  • Other: 100 USD

Total: 1785 USD

The total amount might be less than the proposed here because there are chances to get discounts. But as it is not confirmed yet i am applying for the total amount.

Other instructions[edit]

Though i am not applying 1month earlier but it would be helpful for me if i get a advance disbursement.
