An evening of free culture will be dedicated to wiki residents, photos, and slam

The first program in January, which has traditionally been prepared by Wikimedia ČR for five years, is a social evening dedicated to debates, an exhibition and a slam. The Evening of Free Culture, as the evening is called this time, will present, among other things, the work of wiki-residents working in Czech cultural and memory institutions. The results of the Czech Wiki Photo 2023 competition will be announced and will be on display at the exhibition. At the end of the evening there will be a parade of young Czech slammers at the Wiki Slam.

The debate How we share or Free culture in the practice of public cultural and memory institutions will focus on making collections and databases accessible as part of the GLAM programme. The debate will feature representatives of cooperating institutions, but especially experienced and novice wiki-residents (among others from the State Regional Archives, the Museum of East Bohemia in Hradec Králové or the National Library).
