you are cordially invited to a meeting in Stockholm, Sweden on the 13th of June to discuss Creative Commons' role and activities in the GLAM sector. With the aim to learn from each other, we've invited Maarten Dammers (Wikimedia Netherlands) and Maarten Zeinstra (Knowledgeland). Maarten Dammers will talk about the work of Wikimedia with GLAM institutions, especially in relation to the Wiki Loves Monuments campaigns. Maarten Zeinstra will talk about Europeana's rights infrastructure that enables sharing under all CC licenses.
This will be a full day, starting with a seminar in the morning to which we've also invited participants from the GLAM sector. At the seminar, both Maartens, as well as CC's regional coordinator for Asia-Pacific, Chiaki Hayashi (via videolink), will present together with Lennart Guldbrandsson (Wikimedia Sweden) and Johanna Berg (Digisam). The last two will be held in Swedish to cater to the local participants from the GLAM sector.
Following from this, we'll meet in a workshop together with Maarten & Maarten to talk more specifically about CC's role in the GLAM sector. The aim of the workshop is to come together around a draft strategy that expands on the role that CC play in the GLAM sector, outlines activities that are useful and worth doing, potential collaborators for such activities, and a proposed timeline.
Participation is open for all affiliates and while it's especially relevant for those of you who are public leads in your jurisdiction, participation would also be welcome from others in an affiliate team.
- 09.00 - 12.00 Open seminar on CC & GLAM
- 12.00 - 13.15 Lunch
- 13.15 - 17.00 Workshop with CC affiliates
We'll be in the conference room of the .SE foundation, located at Ringvägen 100A, Stockholm. The closest subway stop to this is Skanstull, four stops from Stockholm C.
Lunch will be provided free of charge, and we'll do our best to cater to any particular requirements. If you think there's something we should know (allergies, if you're vegetarian, pescetarian, or so), then please let us know well in advance.
Travel & accommodation
While we want to see as many affiliates as possible participate in this meeting, our ability to fund travel & accommodation is limited at this time. If you think that the meeting would be relevant to you, but you absolutely do not have enough funds to cover participation on your own or through your affiliate, you should inform about this as early as possibly, but not later than the 1st of June via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Currently, decisions on this will be taken on a case-by-case basis by Creative Commons. Providing some funding yourself, and only asking for a part of it, will obviously increase the likelihood of a positive reply.
Please register not later than the 7th of June via email to email@example.com.
