In October 2020 Goethe Institut and Credipple host a cultural data hackathon #HackUrCulture to work on new digital engagement ideas for galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM). This page summarises some of the resources identified with @PolicyActionZA to support this event.
We've moved these to a separate working page here.
There are some examples of what can be done with open cultural data, mostly from the US (but please Tweet us about others if you have seen them).
