Meet the Judges #CCSharesCulture: Laliv Gal

Open Culture

Creative Commons’ Open Culture Remix Art Contest #CCSharesCulture is open until 30 April 2022. So there’s still plenty of time to remix existing art and turn it into something fresh and exciting under the theme “Love Culture? Share Culture!”

In the run up to the submission deadline, we are introducing our panel of experts, who will judge the entries based on their conformity with the theme, expression of the theme, originality, creativity, quality, artistic expression, personal expression, visual appeal, and overall impact. Get to know one of our six judges, Laliv Gal, in this Q&A blog post. 

Who are you? 

I am a former board member of Wikimedia Israel, and a leader and active member of the Wiki-Woman local project. I have been volunteering for the VIPs Photography Project for Wikipedia for 6 years. I am social media savvy, love to read & write, and I now work as a social media manager in the second largest health system in the world.

What does “better sharing” of culture mean to you? 

I believe that caring is sharing…wherever I go, I take photos and upload them. When I run into someone, the first thing I will do is to check if they have a picture in his Wikipedia article…and if not, I immediately take care of it!

How can open access to cultural heritage stimulate creativity?

It can help people to better relate to their heritage and origins. Here in Israel, we have a lot of it.

What advice would you give to folks who are in two minds about entering CC’s Open Culture Remix Art Contest?

As someone said before: “Just do it!”….

What sparked your passion for “open” culture?

My knowledge is now accessible to others, and I am always happy to share!

What excites you about being a judge for CC’s Open Culture Remix Art Contest?

I’m excited to be a part of the team! To be a judge is a great honor. I did it before in a local form (here in Israel), but this is my first time in an international project. So happy to take part for the very first time! 

CONTEST NOW CLOSED. Thank you so much to everyone who participated. We will announce the shortlisted entries and winners in May 2022.
