Musée d’ethnographie de Genève

This event is organized by the OpenGLAM CH Working Group of the opendata.ch association:

Sign up now for the 9th Swiss Open Cultural Data Hackathon in Geneva

After putting our efforts into raising awareness about OpenGLAM among museums, encouraging projects which engage an audience, working with linked open data, machine learning, human-computer-interaction and crowdsourcing, the focus of the 2023 edition lie on colonial collections, provenance research, as well as the application of the FAIR and CARE principles in data governance.

As in the previous editions, all types of heritage institutions are encouraged to provide data and to participate in the hackathon; it is our goal to improve the networking among them, especially also across sectors (museums, archives, libraries). As in most previous editions, the hackathon will last two days, with an online and offline side programme in the weeks preceding the event to transfer know-how on specific topics and foster the exchange among the OpenGLAM community.

We will spend 2 to 2.5 days at the Musée d’ethnographie de Genève (MEG) in Geneva from 29 to 30 September.

The GLAMhack 2023 official program starts on Friday, but we are working on a possibility to participate in a side programme already on Thursday.
