== Free Culture Showcase ==

* Brief: Light, freedom, open
* colour as inspiration: include the new colour palette as a bonus, not a limitation risk that this could be seen as a limitation?
 *photos: stays in flickr http://www.flickr.com/groups/ubuntu-artwork/
 *illustrative wallpapers: deviantart: http://ubuntu-free-culture.deviantart.com/ -> http://ubuntu-artists.deviantart.com/gallery/25667683

 *music: http://soundcloud.com/groups/ubuntu-free-culture-showcase
