Sharing is Caring returns to Copenhagen!

Save the date: 22-23 March 2021

2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of Sharing is Caring, and also the 10th edition of the Danish cultural heritage hackathon Hack4DK. That calls for a celebration! We’re joining forces to explore how cultural heritage data and content have been put to new innovative and creative use over the past ten years. How can open GLAM data be used, and what is it good for in broader innovative and societal terms?

While we’re preparing for a celebration, we’re also keenly aware of the crisis the world stands in. Now more than ever, we need education, cultural diversity, trustworthy news coverage, and democratic institutions in order to cope with the global challenges we’re facing. Our societies are dependent on access to knowledge and information. Here, open data plays a vital role. The more open data are shared, the greater the chance of finding new and innovative solutions to the challenges we’re facing.

Sharing is Caring 2021 will feature an exciting programme of keynote speakers, ignite talks, networking, and tours of Copenhagen cultural institutions. It is targeted at professionals in libraries, archives and museums, developers, Wikipedians, start-ups, and everyone interested in cultural heritage and digital culture.

Of course, we’re following the developments in Covid-19 related restrictions closely. We hope to be able to host a live, physical conference, but are also ready to adapt in case that’s not possible.

More announcements coming soon. Stay tuned and follow #sharecare21 for updates.

The conference is co-organised by
