We aim to create awareness in Austria about opportunities for cultural heritage and (digital) art through digital transformation and the right to open data regardless of location.
OpenGLAM.AT is a platform for the development of digital strategies and projects of a far-reaching network of Austrian cultural heritage institutions. GLAM is the abbreviation for Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums, where AT stands for the Austrian network in an international context. This platform has its origins in the Open Knowledge Foundation (okfn.at) and is currently run independently as a separate association. The association statues are public and can be accessed at any time. Numerous workshops, participation in conferences and congresses have expanded the network within Austria, which is why cooperation within this network is sought for numerous events and projects focusing on art and culture and digitisation.
As a lighthouse project, the cultural hackathon has already been held in 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021. Such cultural hackathons are also held in Switzerland and Germany. We, the OpenGLAM.AT network, are organising this event for Austria in order to work out our visions, projects and goals and are in close exchange with our international colleagues.
The project leader, community manager and chairwoman Sylvia Petrovic-Majer works closely with the core team. The association is open to participation, following the principles of the open data movement to ensure open knowledge, participation and transparency.
