More responsibility for cultural heritage
Wikipedia and Wiki loves monuments were well used examples for best practice: sharing information and gaining mutual benefits. More than 200 executives of GLAM institutions attended the two days conference. Essential was Pavel Richter's (CEO WMDE) claim:
"Nicht der Zugang zu kulturellem Erbe unterliegt einer Begründungspflicht, sondern dessen Verknappung."
translated to "It is not the access to cultural heritage that is obliged to to argue for itself but its scarity."
The conference will be followed up by a national screening of access policies and cooperation projects in GLAM institutions.
