Welcome to Hack4OpenGLAM 19–23 October!

After Hack4FI got cancelled in the spring, we are now proud to invite you to the first-ever Hack4OpenGLAM! The 4-day culture hack will be arranged as part of the 2020 Creative Commons Global Summit 19–23 October, 2020.

Hack4OpenGLAM is a unique opportunity for creative minds from all sectors and professional backgrounds to come together and create something new together, based on Open Access digital cultural heritage collections. Your participation is more than welcome, whether you already have experience with hackathons or not and whether you bring programming or crafts skills to the table.

Propose a project to work on!

Whether you are a hacker, tinkerer, creative mind or a GLAM professional, you are invited to propose a project to work on. Come with an idea or work on a new idea together with others. We accept ideas, existing projects, sprints, tools or workshops. Propose workshops before Wednesday 7 October.

Present cultural heritage your institution has opened!

The hackathon is a celebration of Open Access cultural heritage. Make your contributions available and help the participants get to know them. Tell creators how they can be accessed and take part in the creative process.

Or just join!

There will be lots to participate in. Find your Open Access soulmates and start creating. You can also offer your help as a volunteer or a mentor.
