Annually, the Swiss OpenGLAM working group unites cultural institutions, software developers, digital humanists, artists, Wikipedians, and other enthusiasts with a shared goal of advancing openness within galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM). Within the collaborative environment of GLAMhack, we engage in joint experimentation and innovation, exploring the realms of cultural content and digital tools. Our focus spans research initiatives, web and mobile applications, Wikipedia, and various other applications, all aimed at fostering openness and creativity.

Under the theme “On the Move” GLAMhack24 objective is to trace the movements of individuals to and from Switzerland and further away, capturing the imprints they leave within cultural heritage collections such as images and letters. Our aim is to reintroduce these historical footprints to present-day users. Additionally, we envision the capability to transport individuals through time, allowing them to experience the discovery of artifacts firsthand.

Join us for GLAMhack24 (6-7.9) at the Zentral- und Hochschulbibliothek Luzern (ZHB), where creativity meets innovation. Create prototypes utilizing open cultural data to enhance the digital transformation of the GLAM sector.

The GLAMhack24 official program starts on Friday, but we are working on a possibility to participate in a side programme already on Thursday.


Discover us at Wikipedia Day in Bern on April 27, 2024. Swing by our table in the event room to delve into GLAMhack24. From 12:30 to 16:00, engage with our project presentations and network with us.
