On the 5th and 6th of May, the Museo Pignatelli in Naples will host Wikimuseums, an event on open data and museums organised by BAM! Cultural Strategies in collaboration with the Polo museale della Campania and with the support of the event “City Challenges” organised by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Rome.
We are excited to present two days of workshops and meetings, which through practice and theory will try to encourage Italian museums to be more open with their audience, talking about open data, working on Wikipedia, and taking inspiration from some particularly virtuous cases.
The first day, Thursday, 5th of May, will be devoted to a group of students who alongside us will be thrown into a last ditch effort editathon focused on places and monuments in Naples.
Friday, 6th May however, will be the day when we will welcome the employees related to the sector, academics, the most hardened culturegeeks and all the curious. Alongside us here at BAM! There will be the Dutch network Open Cultuur Data and some important Italian and European museums. The afternoon will be devoted to practice: a group of employees will be able to participate in a workshop focused on Wikipedia and its use in museums.
The more detailed program, the form to register and more detailed information will come in the next few days.
For now put get your diary out and put in these dates: Naples, 5th and 6th of May 2016
