Episode 3: Open Culture VOICES – Temitope Odumosu


New week, new episode of Open Culture VOICES! VOICES is a vlog series of short interviews with open GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) experts from around the world. The Open Culture Program at Creative Commons aims to promote better sharing of cultural heritage in GLAMs collections. With Open Culture VOICES, we’re thrilled to bring you various perspectives from dozens of experts speaking in many different languages on what it’s like to open up heritage content online.  On episode three, we’re joined by Dr. Temitope Odumosu, art historian, curator and senior lecturer in cultural studies at Malmö University in Sweden. Her international research and cultural practice is concerned with the representation of African peoples, visual and affective politics of slavery and colonialism, colonial archives and archiving, Afro-Diaspora aesthetics, and more broadly exploring how art mediates social transformation and healing.

Jonathan responds to the following questions: 

What are the main benefits of open GLAM?
What are the barriers?
Could you share something someone else told you that opened up your eyes and mind about open GLAM?
Do you have a personal message to those hesitating to open up collections?

Episodes will be released twice a week until June 2022. Missed episode two of our Open Culture VOICES series? Catch up here >>
