Once a year, the Swiss OpenGLAM working group brings together cultural institutions, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikipedians and other interested parties to promote openness among galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). At the GLAMhack, we collaboratively experiment and innovate with cultural content and digital tools for research, web and mobile applications, Wikipedia and other uses. This edition focuses 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; one of its goals is 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.

Join us for GLAMhack23 (29-30.9) at the Musée d’ethnographie in Geneva, where creativity meets innovation. Develop prototypes with open cultural data to strengthen the digital transformation of the GLAM sector.
We will spend 2 to 2.5 days at the Musée d’ethnographie de Genève (MEG) in Geneva from 29 to 30 September.
Datasets and challenges
We are currently preparing data from Rietberg Museum, from Archives de la Ville de Genève as well as other institutions with colonial collections.
