Panels?

I'd be interested in organising a panel session on the general topic of scaling up activities to work with more organisations more easily. But I'm not sure whether panels are welcome at the conference - this page is focused on talks? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:02, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

We certainly have mentioned panels and workshops at the meetings without any cries of opposition, so I think we can say, sure, they are welcome :-). I will expand this correspondingly. Andrew Gray (talk) 20:16, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Text for Europeana

(Starting point from GLAM-CAMP call page) We are seeking proposals for presentations, workshop proposals, or panel discussions.

  • On the Friday, we are hoping to look at the work Wikimedia and other organisations have done in partnership with cultural institutions, presenting case studies and discussing the benefits to both parties.
  • On the Saturday, we will be focusing on the more practical and technical side, looking at ways to work together and running workshops to share best practice.

There will also be a series of practical workshops running in parallel on both Friday and Saturday. The Sunday will be organised as an unconference, where the agenda and session topics are being determined by attendees on the day.

Possible themes for papers:

  • Making partnerships sustainable
    • Moving beyond a volunteer contact
    • Continuing partnerships after the the first, easy, projects
    • How to make the most of the cooperation between GLAM institutions and Wikip/medias volunteers
  • New models and future projects
    • Wikipedians in Residence outside GLAMs?
    • "Ubiquitous engagement" such as Monmouthpedia.
    • Extending GLAM partnerships to non-traditional institutions
    • e-volunteering
    • Mobile engagement

The call for papers is ongoing. Papers from non-Wikimedian cultural institution professionals are especially welcome.

  • Note for diary and Call for Papers
  • The GLAM-WIKI Conference 2013 will be held at the British Library in London on Friday 12 - Sunday 14 April 2013. This is the second conference in the series following a very successful first event at the British Museum in 2010. The conference brings together professionals from "GLAM" institutions - that is Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums - and activists, volunteers and those interested in open content for the cultural sector, especially on Wikipedia and the other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation. The conference is organised by Wikimedia UK in association with Wikimedia Sweden and Europeana, and hosted by the British Library. The cost to attendees will be low, especially for those from GLAM institutions and Wikimedia volunteers.
  • We are seeking proposals for keynotes, presentations, workshop proposals, or panel discussions.
  • On the Friday, we will look at open content initiatives by cultural institutions, including work in partnership with Wikimedia and other organisations, with a few case studies and discussing future directions.
  • On the Saturday, we will be focusing on the more practical and technical side, looking at ways to work together and running workshops to share interests, concerns and best practice.

There will also be a series of practical workshops running in parallel on both Friday and Saturday. The Sunday will be organised as an unconference, where the agenda and session topics are being determined by attendees on the day.

Possible themes for the conference include:

  • Digitization, how much is enough?
  • Mobile apps, lessons learnt
  • Making partnerships sustainable
    • Moving beyond a volunteer contact
    • Continuing partnerships after the the first, easy, projects
    • How to make the most of the cooperation between GLAM institutions and Wikip/medias volunteers
  • New models and future projects
    • Wikipedians in Residence outside GLAMs?
    • "Ubiquitous engagement" such as Monmouthpedia.
    • Extending GLAM partnerships to non-traditional institutions
    • e-volunteering
    • Mobile engagement

Comments on new draft

I changed "cooperation" to "association" - equally vague but more idiomatic in English I think - I'm not too bothered about this. You may remember a discussion on these terms on the ?cultural partners list a while back - we don't want our heads shaved by the Dutch - that's what they do to collaborators apparently. I forgot to add that bit, which I meant to. Fine with it now. Sorry it took so long (bd meeting till 15 to midnight at the office today)! Johnbod (talk) 00:33, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Okay :). I will send the text to Europeana at 11.00 if no one has any more comments. Cheers, John Andersson (WMSE) (talk) 07:44, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

    Beyond pilot projects: Working Wikimedia into the workflow of an organization. --Lori Phillips (talk)
  4. Can the GLAM movement help close the gender gap? How GLAMs have the opportunity to contribute beyond just their content, but for the sake of open knowledge gender equality, as well. SarahStierch (talk) 14:22, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
    Science GLAM --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 21:49, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

  6. GLAM Strategies and Experiences in the German Chapter --Barbara Fischer (WMDE) (talk) 08:23, 7 May 2012 (UTC)`
  7. Wikidata, what's in it for GLAM-Wiki? Aude (talk) 15:06, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
  8. Our project with Europeana. Multichill (talk) 19:08, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
  9. Overview of past and future GLAM projects in a certain country (state of GLAM in .....). Multichill (talk) 19:08, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
  10. Exploring partnerships: India and UK Noopur28. Given the initial success and explorations with museums in India, we are confident of exploring possibilities with institutions in the UK given India's long colonial past and the rich variety of art archives and objects that contribute to India's cultural history.
    GLAMs focussed on Africa or with African contents. Many institutions around the world have a rich documentation related to Africa; providing those contents to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects can foster their visibility and facilitate their access (schools, intercultural and multicultural projects, diaspora, migrants, Africa). --Iopensa (talk) 09:50, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
  11. The Wikimedia movement and the memory of World War I - The Land (talk) 12:21, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
  12. Why don't UK museums make large releases of images under free licences? Johnbod (talk) 17:08, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Withdrawn

Withdrawn proposals (because they can't make it, sadly):

Beyond pilot projects: Working Wikimedia into the workflow of an organization.

  • Presenter Name: Lori Phillips
  • Talk Length: 20 min
  • Talk Description: The ultimate goal of a GLAM-Wiki partnership is to establish an ongoing and sustaining program within a cultural institution. Successful long-term GLAM-Wiki partnerships are those who manage to incorporate Wikimedia into the everyday workflow, but we are only just beginning to understand what this might look like. This presentation will mark the beginning of the dialogue needed to establish best practices around long-term GLAM-Wiki cooperations, presenting one instance of an ongoing partnership that has worked to balance the museum staff's time with the needs of the Wikimedia community.
