Abstract (maximum 500 words)

I intend to present some of my work that has been in the direction of setting up GLAM programs in India. I will also talk about the initiatives one can take as an individual and community to start healthy documenting and archiving practices which have been lethally absent from the GLAM scene in institutions across the country. Apart from this, I also see this talk as an outreach move to call upon interested wikipedians who can collaborate and coordinate geographically and start conversations with a few art archives that I have been in touch with.
