Annually, the Swiss OpenGLAM working group unites cultural institutions, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikipedians, and other enthusiasts with a shared goal of advancing openness within galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM).
Within the collaborative environment of GLAMhack, we engage in joint experimentation and innovation, exploring the realms of cultural content and digital tools. Our focus spans research initiatives, web and mobile applications, Wikipedia, and various other applications, all aimed at fostering openness and creativity.
The next GLAMhack24 in Luzern aims to explore the theme of human peregrinations through cultural heritage collections. The project, titled “Re:collecting Peregrinations” focuses on making existing collections accessible in a digital environment and fostering multidisciplinary collaboration to create artistic projects inspired by these materials.
