Welcome to episode 17 of Open Culture VOICES! VOICES is a vlog series of short interviews with open GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) experts from around the world. The Open Culture Program at Creative Commons aims to promote better sharing of cultural heritage in GLAMs collections. With Open Culture VOICES, we’re thrilled to bring you various perspectives from dozens of experts speaking in many different languages on what it’s like to open up heritage content online. In this episode, we hear from Patricia Díaz Rubio, a Chilean social communicator (Universidad de Chile) passionate about collective work and social impact. Since 2018, she has been working at Wikimedia Chile, promoting local and open content on the Internet.
Patricia responds to the following questions:
- What are the main benefits of open GLAM?
- What are the barriers?
- Could you share something someone else told you that opened up your eyes and mind about open GLAM?
- Do you have a personal message to those hesitating to open up collections?
Episodes will be released twice a week until June 2022. Missed episode 16 of our Open Culture VOICES series? Catch up here >>
