Siobhan Leachman — Open Culture VOICES, Season 2 Episode 6

“Open Culture gives joy!” What a great message from Siobhan. In this episode we learn about Open Culture in public institutions in New Zealand, how public works are reused in a variety of ways, and what governments can do to promote open policies and copyright laws around the world.

Open Culture VOICES is a series of short videos that highlight the benefits and barriers of open culture as well as inspiration and advice on the subject of opening up cultural heritage. Siobhan is a volunteer for various Wikimedia projects including Wikicommons, Wikidata, and Wikipedia.

Siobhan 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?
