On October 29&30, the first all-digital edition of "Shaping Access!" took place, broadcasted from the offices of Wikimedia Deutschland. 25 speakers talked about innovation, copyright, public freedom & data protection in the crisis. For two days, the participants discussed new paths that cultural institutions must take due to the pandemic. The videos of the conference (in German) are online:
Conference day 1, innovation and copyright
After a greeting from Abraham Taherivand, digital cultural projects were presented that were created during the months of contact restrictions. Later, the role of Open Data in the cultural sector was discussed, and interested people were able to join in the discussion in thematic focus groups.
Conference day 2, public domain and data protection
What is in the public domain must also remain in the digital public domain! This WMDE demand was reaffirmed in the Wikimedia salon "Who owns art?" We also dealt with data protection hurdles in digital cultural projects - and how they can be overcome.
