Online Course Cultural Institutions This activity belongs to our strategic approach:Strengthening cultural institutions We are going to carry out our first distance-learning initiative in the GLAM program. Although we want to promote the course in a similar way as the Education course, the activities and contents will be designed differently, given that cultural institutions in Argentina are at an earlier stage in terms of knowledge about the program and its projects, and about Wikimedia projects in general. The estimated duration of the online course will be 4 weeks.

In this regard, our objectives are:

  • To improve the awareness of cultural institutions on the concept of free culture, the Wikimedia projects and how they can relate to their own activities.
  • To increase the knowledge of the program in Argentina, and to improve our coordination with new institutions outside Buenos Aires.
  • To position cultural leaders as promoters of the program in different institutions throughout the country.
