Sharing is Caring – Brussels Extension
Opening up with Wikimedia
Sharing is Caring is a conference platform focused on collaboration and sharing in the cultural heritage sector, bringing together practitioners, researchers, and users of culture.
In analogy to the TED conferences and local TEDx extensions, the format is spreading from the core-event in Denmark to other countries, where local extensions address the topics that are close to their heart and their community.
After the first extension in Hamburg, Wikimedia Belgium and PACKED vzw Centre of Expertise in Digital Heritage proudly announced ‘Sharing is Caring – Brussels Extension: Opening up with Wikimedia’ on 20 June at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage Brussels.
The’ Sharing is Caring – Brussels extension’ conference introduced the Belgian heritage sector to the possible applications of the various Wikimedia platforms for opening up digital collections. The conference showcased examples from museums, libraries and archives from Belgium and abroad.
Besides showcasing Wiki-GLAM cooperations, the goal of the conference was to find motivated individuals and institutions with whom to organise content donations, promote reuse and remix.
