Using our Content

All of our articles and videos are free to republish using a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence, and you can also use them in educational resources like lesson plans. This sounds like a lot of letters, but it’s pretty simple. Essentially, as long as you’re not making money out of our work, you can republish it as long as you credit us and don’t change it in any way (more details incoming).

Are you looking to use our content for commercial purposes? We’ll most likely find a way to make it work. We just need to know what the deal is first, so just drop us a line at, and we’ll sort something out.

Republishing Guidelines

If you’re looking to republish our work on your own website, great, but we do have a couple of guidelines to follow. We’re more than happy to answer any questions, though, so just email us at if anything is unclear.

You need to give us credit: If you’re using an article, the author and Rock & Art must be credited for the work. This can either be done using a joint byline for Rock & Art and the author’s name or using the format ‘Firstname Surname at Rock & Art’. If you’re using our videos, a simple credit directly underneath will do!

We’ll also need a link: Whether you’re working on print or digital, you’ll also need to make sure you include a link back to us at You might find it the following example text useful ‘This article has been republished under Creative Commons from Rock & Art – Cultural Outreach (, an intersectional cultural journalism magazine which inspires people to rethink pop culture.

It would be best if you let us know when you’ve used our content: Knowing where you’re using our content is a massive help for us. We’re a really small charity, so knowing who we’ve reached and how we’ve made an impact is really important.

You can’t sell our stuff: Unless you’ve got our permission, you can’t sell the content we’ve created or use it for commercial purposes.

You can’t use all of our articles or videos: We’re excited that you want to use our stuff, but a reasonable usage policy applies. Essentially, you can’t publish all of our articles on your website or have them make up the majority of the work you publish.

You can’t edit our content: While we appreciate that you may need to make some small changes to match your house style or to reflect changes in the date, you cannot make any material edits without running through them first. If you want to make any substantial changes or cuts to the text or video, drop us a line.
