GLAM mix’n’hack 2019

6-8 September 2019, Les Arsenaux, Sion

This year’s Open Cultural Data Hackathon is a collaboration with Museomix.ch, an open community of innovation, culture, and technology enthusiasts. We are looking forward to an exciting combination of the makeathon approach of Museomix aiming at the creation of interactive prototypes with our hackathon format working with open data from Swiss heritage institutions.

The event takes place on 6-8 September 2019 at the brand new cultural center Les Arsenaux in Sion, as part of the inauguration celebrations. The Médiathèque Valais, the State Archives and Cantonal Museums are our hosting partners. Further partners include Wikimedia CH and infoclio.

The GLAMmix’n’hack brings together data providers and mediators, software developers and digital humanists, artists and Wikimedians/Wikipedians, scientists and other interested people in order to experiment how cultural data and content can be used for research purposes, for web and mobile apps, in the context of Wikipedia, for artistic re-mixes or other forms of re-use. This year, we have decided to give the event a main topic: PLURALISM. The theme should give the participants a guideline or inspiration for their projects.

If you are interested in participating as a data provider, please look at these infosheets: German / French. Please contact us if you need any help or advice.
