From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

In 2021, AvoinGLAM worked as a joint working group connecting Wikimedia Finland, Open Knowledge Finland, and Creative Commons Finland's work in 2021. Wikimedia Finland contributed to the working group with the work of the GLAM coordinator Susanna Ånäs. Creative Commons Finland / Open Knowledge Finland managed the Hack4OpenGLAM hackathon.


AvoinGLAM discussions[edit]

The 2021 activities are kicked off with a series of discussions. AvoinGLAM invites cultural practitioners from all directions to discuss Open Access to cultural heritage and co-create new initiatives together. See the event page in the AvoinGLAM blog.
