Episode 21: Open Culture VOICES – Céline Chanas

Open Culture


Welcome to episode 21 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 Céline Chanas, Head Conservator at the Musée de Bretagne in Rennes. During her professional career, she has acquired expertise in social museums, the management of heritage establishments, cultural mediation and exhibitions. She also serves as President of the Federation of Ecomuseums and Society Museums, an association committed to recognizing the social role of museums, at the heart of regional projects.

Céline responds to the following questions: 

  1. What are the main benefits of open GLAM?
  2. What are the barriers?
  3. Could you share something someone else told you that opened up your eyes and mind about open GLAM?
  4. Do you have a personal message to those hesitating to open up collections?
