Following the success of our first workshop back in May we’ve been busy developing and planning a next round of events.
First up is a day-long workshop on ‘Crowd-Sourcing, Co-Creation and Co-Curation in the Cultural Sector.’ This event will take place on December 1, 2015 at The Lighthouse in Glasgow. This workshop explores different methods for generating user-informed content, and looks at how a range of cultural institutions have incorporated these new ideas, insights and perspectives into what they do. The day will feature presentations from leading practitioners and scholars based in the UK and the rest of Europe, as well as opportunities for group work and discussion among participants.

The workshop’s sister event is a Knowledge Exchange day on December 2, 2015 at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. Jointly organised with the Museums Galleries Scotland Digital Transformation Network, it is aimed at cultural heritage professionals and it will be an exploration and exchange of different approaches to crowd-sourcing and co-creation. The day begins with a meeting of the Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) Digital Transformation Network, followed by two hands-on sessions. The first, led by Mia Ridge from the British Library, will address the basics of crowdsourcing. The second will look at Wikipedia and edit-a-thons, and will be led by Sara Thomas (MGS Wikipedian in Residence) and assisted by Maarten Brinkerink (Netherlands Institute for Sound & Vision).
