GLAM Hack designed and implemented the workshop: “We need to hack the GLAMs to talk about Democracy!” in the context of European Youth Weeks 2019*.

In the context of the workshop, participants became acquainted with: (a) digital archives and repositories of cultural heritage (e.g. Europeana, OpenGLAM etc.), (b) Creative Commons licenses, and (c) good practices of creative reuses of digital cultural heritage. In addition, with the use of online image processing programmes and tools, they created their own derivative artworks, and then organised and curated an exhibition-campaign about Democracy.

*European Youth Weeks is an annual international project hosted by Haus am Maiberg, in Heppenheim, Germany, where young people engage in socio-political topics. It is addressed to anyone between 18 and 27 years old living in Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, or Spain. The title of the 2019 edition was “We need to talk about DEMOCRACY”. This year’s project took place between July 20 and August 03, and its focus was understanding and participating in the democratic process.
