GLAM Hack WORKSHOP as part of the ECHO II: TRADITIONS IN TRANSITION in Athens 25/5/2022

Balkans Beyond Borders and GLAM Hack, in the context of the open access policy of the project ECHO II: Traditions in Transition, co-organize a 2-session workshop for artists, heritage professionals, cultural managers, activists and anyone interested in the Open GLAM movement. The workshop will take place on Wednesday 25 May 2022 (time: 17:30 – 21:00) at Goethe-Institut Athen.   


About the GLAM Hack workshop

Session 1: Copyright and Creative Commons Licenses: A Short History 

The first session will focus on the history of copyright and Creative Commons licenses in relation to the development of reproduction techniques and (new) media. By highlighting long-forgotten standpoints in this history and development, this session will help participants move away from a view of copyright as based on fixed principles or traditions, and start developing a more flexible and critical way of thinking about it.  


Session 2: Open Business Models for Artists and Cultural Organizations 

The second session will focus on some examples of artists and cultural and creative organizations that have adopted Creative Commons licenses; and will help participants learn how to design their own open business models in the fields of arts and culture with the use of the CC Toolkit for Business.
