“Culture is something that should be shared among many people.” Hardi talks about the work he is doing with Wikipedia to make collections in Indonesia accessible to the wider world. He explains how the internet makes unique cultures more visible and promotes dialogue between cultures.
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. Hardi is the Deputy General Secretary for Internal Affairs and Partnership Manager of Wikimedia Indonesia and has been working in open culture since he started with Wikipedia.
Hardi 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?
