Felix feels that “sharing is something that is invited in human nature” and this is something that has inspired part of his own journey within Open Culture and the Open Movement. In this episode we learn about digital and media rights in Ghana and Liberia as well as the ways local initiatives for open access are being fostered by Felix’s work with Wikimedia.
Open Culture VOICES is a series of short videos that highlight the benefits and barriers of open culture as well as inspiration and advice on the subject of opening up cultural heritage. Felix is a Senior Program Officer at the Wikimedia Foundation and also volunteers with Creative Commons and Mozilla to promote the Commons and Open Access.
Félix 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?
