GLAM Hack innovation lies in the combination of digital and analogue activities. GLAM Hackers will see their own works exhibited in GLAM Hack digital platform, as well as in unorthodox cultural spaces in Athens, Greece (the GLAM Hack Exhibition Spots).
GLAM Hack is for creators (researchers, artists, bloggers etc.), educators, GLAM professionals, as well as for internet users who love culture and are interested in digital commons.
*GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums, and it is used to describe the cultural heritage sector as a whole. GLAMs are collecting, preserving, researching and exhibiting cultural heritage materials — and currently, they are gradually digitising their collections in order to provide open access to culture and knowledge to all. Open access provides us with free and perpetual permission to modify this digitised content and to create our own new cultural works. In other words, it gives us the ability to ‘hack’ GLAMs!
