Session Abstract

The free culture movement and traditional memory institutions - frenemies or love story waiting to happen? The Wikimedia movement, in particular, has been partnering with memory institutions ("GLAMs") for about a decade, with impressive outcomes for all sides, and above all for the general public. Progress has been much slower in emerging communities and the Global South.

The talk will offer some insights from the speaker's own experience as a free culture librarian, explore some of the less-obvious challenges and contexts for free culture partnerships in emerging communities (e.g. systemic bias), highlight some best practices, and conclude with reflections on how can the rest of us help open repositories in emerging communities.

Free culture activist Asaf Bartov is the volunteer founding editor of Project Ben-Yehuda, longtime Wikipedia volunteer, and Wikimedia Foundation program officer working with emerging communities.
