OpenGLAM is supported by a global network of people and organisations who are working to open up content and data held by GLAM institutions.

We run workshops and provide documentation for cultural institutions wanting to open up their data and content as well as organising events bringing together groups that are committed to building an open cultural commons.

Events

This is a calendar of global events relevant to the OpenGLAM network. It includes hackathons, code sprints, conferences and meet-ups that relate to opening up cultural heritage. Open GLAM Calendar
