Sharing is Caring 2021 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

22-23 March 2021

2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of Sharing is Caring and 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?

Due to Covid-19 restrictions on traveling and public assembling, the conference will be all virtual. It will run over two days, Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 March, and is livestreamed. Attendance is free.

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, panel discussions and online social networking. It is targeted at professionals in libraries, archives and museums, developers, Wikipedians, start-ups, and everyone interested in cultural heritage and digital culture.

Registration is now open – attendance is free.

The conference is co-organised by
