Join developing Knowledge Equity at Hack4OpenGLAM
Describe what your session is about
We will present a short video and host a super-brief 30-minute discussion on what Hack4OpenGLAM is about and how you could contribute.
Hack4OpenGLAM takes place in the context of Creative Commons Global Summit 20–24 September. It is a co-creation event for working towards Open Access to cultural heritage. The cultural hackathon consists of a workshop day, followed by three independent working days, and a celebration event.
It brings together content communities, GLAM 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.
This year we are focusing 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.
developers in the Wikimedia ecosystem, interested in the integration of the diversity of sources of cultural heritage in the Wikimedia projects
Who is this session most relevant to? For example: new contributors, maintainers, documentarians, first-time attendees, etc.
Anyone from a beginner to an expert with an interest in knowledge equity.
