‘Towards Better Sharing of Cultural Heritage’ Workshop — Help us develop a CC Open Culture Guide for Policymakers

Events, Open Culture

Join us at the ‘Towards Better Sharing of Cultural Heritage’ Workshop on Tuesday 10 May 2022 at 3 PM UTC as we kickstart the development of a CC Open Culture Guide for Policymakers.

This digital workshop will continue the work of the newly released paper “Towards Better Sharing of Cultural Heritage — An Agenda for Copyright Reform”. We will bring together policy experts and open culture enthusiasts from around the world to help shape the first ever CC Open Culture Guide for Policymakers.

The workshop will begin with a brief overview of the main policy issues affecting better sharing of cultural heritage. Panelists will then share their insights into ways to develop impactful and effective guidance to reshape policy. This will be followed by an interactive session where we will co-create an initial roadmap for developing a guide for policymakers to support the public-interest goals and mission of cultural heritage institutions and their users around the globe.



As a participant, you will have the opportunity to share your views and have your say in one of our four breakout sessions: 

  1. Open Culture in an Ideal World: Needs, goals and aspirations of the open culture movement 
  2. Open Culture in our Current World: Problems, hurdles and challenges
  3. Bridging the Gap between Current and Ideal: Exploring solutions: exceptions and limitations and safeguarding the public domain
  4. New horizons: artificial intelligence, copyright and cultural heritage
