Welcome to episode 34 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. In this episode, we hear from Kristina Petrasova, Project Lead Digital Heritage & Public Media at the Netherlands Institute for Sound & Vision, a cultural archive and museum in Hilversum. Kristina has a deep passion for international art and culture, and has worked in the cultural heritage sectors for several years. After working as conservator of the National Numismatic Collection (NNC) in the Netherlands, she is now focusing on research and production of cultural and artistic projects, exhibitions and documentary films.
Kristina 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?
