The OpenGLAM Initiative was formed by Open Knowledge Foundation. In 2018, members from Creative Commons, the Wikimedia Foundation and Open Knowledge gathered at the Creative Commons Global Summit in Toronto to discuss actions to revitalize the initiative. The first steps included revitalizing the @openglam Twitter account, making it a curated account with collaborators from all over the world; run a survey to understand the relevance nowadays of the OpenGLAM Principles and work on developing a new website.

In 2019, the Wikimedia Foundation decided to support the work around publishing a new revision of the OpenGLAM Principles or Declaration for a fiscal year (through August 2019-July 2020). This money will fund project management and support for the OpenGLAM community in the rewrite and release of the OpenGLAM Principles/Declaration; revamping the OpenGLAM website & defining a strategy for current communication channels; and allocating some travel funds for people to promote and engage the sector around the Declaration, among other activities.
