Kulturhackathonet Hack4OpenGLAM ägde rum första gången 2020, på Creative Commons Global Summit. AvoinGLAM, som är en arbetsgrupp inom GLAM med [$3 Wikimedia Finland], Open Knowledge Finland och [$5 Creative Commons Finland], anordnar hackathonet igen 2021. Evenemanget består av en workshopdag, som efterföljs av tre oberoende arbetsdagar under CC Summit-dagarna, och efter mötet ett event för att fira framgångarna.

Vad är Hack4OpenGLAM?

Hack4OpenGLAM is a co-creation event for working towards Open Access to cultural heritage. The event brings together content communities, GLAM professionals (including but not limited to Gallerists, Librarians, Archivists and Museum professionals), advocates of open cultural heritage, digital creators, and tools or platform developers – from newcomers to experts – to learn, work, and create with one another.

Knowledge equity

In 2021, Hack4OpenGLAM focused on knowledge equity – highlighting knowledge of individuals, communities, and cultures who have been left out of the spotlight of history, decolonizing cultural historical collections, and acknowledging responsible ways of sharing information online openly.


Even between official events, it is possible to participate in the Hack4OpenGLAM projects.

Propose a project to work on, join others in their project, bring the content of you institution and your expertise of the subject matter to the event, or come and support those who wish to use your tools.
