AvoinGLAM organizes the watch party during which we run the workshop Crisis and GLAM. In the workshop, we will hear about the experiences and activities of wikimedians responding to crises, and to map out collaborations and practices that can help combat crisis situations facing humans, the environment, and cultural heritage. The Wikimania program ends at 6 p.m., after which the event continues with more casual socializing.

We welcome all friends of open cultural heritage and knowledge from different networks to get to know each other in URBAN3, the joint base of AvoinGLAM, Open Knowledge Finland, Creative Commons Finland, and Wikimedia Finland.
