Logo GLAM Wiki Conference 2023 ID: 2069 Remixing Open Culture: Get Creative with Creative Commons
Facilitators/Speakers: Jocelyn Miyara Time block: Afternoon Beginning: 16:00
Location: 110-111 Duration: 1 hr

Public domain works give us a wealth of content that we can reuse, remix, and create new art and content. WIth a supply of Public Domain art, some printed slogans, messages and words related to Open Access, and other crafting supplies we will help you to create your own Open Culture propaganda. During this workshop, we will talk about how to remix and properly credit public domain works, while also allowing you to use your own creativity to promote better sharing of GLAM collections. You may use some suggested messages or create your own. Some themes you might think about promoting in your propaganda include:

Open Culture…

  • enriches research, education and learning to solve the world’s biggest problems
  • enlivens arts, culture and creativity to help us live richer lives
  • promotes diversity, inclusivity and equity to sustain democratic and resilient societies
  • propels institutions into the digital world to ensure their continued relevance, mission alignment and service orientation

Together we’ll brainstorm some catch-phrases to promote Open Culture and then use our favorites to create your own mini - poster.

Participants will take away a unique piece of art that they created promoting Open Culture (or Open GLAM), and an understanding of how the works from the public domain can be reused and properly cited.

Logo GLAM Wiki Conference 2023 ID: 1875 Flickypedia - alpha showcase, feedback, discussion
Facilitators/Speakers: George Oates, Alex Chan Time block: Afternoon Beginning: 16:00
Location: 410 Duration: 1 hr

By the time the conference rolls around, we should have an Alpha version of our new Flickypedia tool ready for people to try. We would like to have a workshop to show the group the new release, and to talk more broadly about what people are thinking about the following topics: Flickr2Commons, Using Flickr, Using Wikimedia Commons, Structured Data on Commons, how CC licensing is evolving, and in general some hopes and dreams for the next decade or so.

We hope the session would be quite relaxed and conversational, and we'd prepare an agenda ahead of time.

It will be a good opportunity to do broader outreach too, about the Flickr Foundation, and its very long term goals.

Participants will gain:

  • Awareness of the new Flickypedia tool
  • Improved understanding of CC-licensing requirements for Commons
  • Ideas/awareness of Structured Data on Commons
  • Experience of software development user research
  • Awareness of legal challenges of moving content across platforms
  • Hopefully, a feeling of contribution to a very long term idea
  • Contribution of knowledge/perspective on broader GLAM-related issues/needs

Our presentation is available as Google Slides. Please enjoy!
