29 and 30 September 2023

L'image représente la bataille d'Adoua (1896), qui se termina par la victoire des troupes éthiopiennes sur les troupes italiennes mettant fin à la première guerre coloniale italo-éthiopienne.

2 days of workshops to collaborate and innovate with cultural content and digital tools. MEG. 29-30.09.2023.

Once a year, the Swiss OpenGLAM Working Group brings together data providers, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikimedians/Wikipedians, and other interested people in order to experiment how cultural data and content can be used for research purposes, for web and mobile apps, in the context of Wikipedia, for artistic re-mixes, or for other forms of re-use.
After raising awareness about OpenGLAM among museums, encouraging projects which engage an audience, working with linked open data, machine learning, human-computer-interaction and crowdsourcing, the focus of the 2023 edition lie on colonial collections, provenance research and the application of the FAIR and CARE principles in data governance!

As in the previous editions, all types of heritage institutions are encouraged to provide data and to participate in the hackathon; one of its goals is to improve the networking among them, especially also across sectors (museums, archives, libraries). As in most previous editions, the hackathon will last two days, with an online and offline side programme in the weeks preceding the event.

If you are unable to join us over the two days, you are welcome to attend the public presentations of the results of this collaborative workshop by the participants!
MEG auditorium. Saturday 30 September, 15.30-17.00 pm.
