Welcome to the landing page for the GLAM Space at Wikimania 2019 in Stockholm!
Galleries, libraries, archives, museums and the cultural sector
The GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) and Cultural Partnerships space aims to cover the breadth of cultural and heritage-related activities in the movement, either through external partnerships or our own community initiatives.
Through mini-keynotes, lightning talks, case studies, skills training, identifying critical challenges and group brainstorming sessions, the space will employ a number of approaches to engage Wikimedia community members, and those new to the movement, in how to improve content in the artistic, cultural and heritage domains.
This space is open to all interested in artistic, cultural and heritage institutions and partnerships in the production of Wikimedia and open content. There is special space dedicated to libraries which may be of interest.
- GLAM Tools training/showcase
- GLAM case studies
- Understanding GLAM licenses
- The role of GLAM on the sum of free knowledge
- Gender gap, culture and diversity on GLAM
- Strategies for dealing with GLAM institutions

Ive proposed a workshop under Education sector. on Wikidata for Wikimedia Commons contributors, which may fit also in here helping GLAMers to get into this new and future feature of WMC.Juandev (talk) 00:25, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
- Thanks much for letting us know! -- Fuzheado (talk) 18:27, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Any update on the expected accept/reject dates? One of my proposals would require quite a bit of time to prepare, in order to deliver sufficient quality (if accepted). Effeietsanders (talk) 01:57, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
- Hi Effeietsanders, the space leader hope to put together a draft schedule next week, so you should be notified shortly. Ciell (talk) 20:27, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Is there a Sign Up for the Lighting Talks already available? Thanks for sharing!
Possible Crossover Session[edit source]
Hello GLAM space!
The Advocacy space has just finished reviewing our proposals, and we have a proposal that we thought might fit more in the GLAM space or that we could submit as a crossover session.
If you wouldn’t mind, could you please take a look at https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/2019:Advocacy/Public_Domain_and_Profitability to see if you be interested in including them in your space or a crossover session!
