Hack4Heritage – Save the date!



Between the 14th and the 16th of October, Digisam in cooperation with the Stockholm City Archives will arrange a creative hackathon – Hack4Heritage. Focus will lie on open Swedish/Nordic cultural heritage data and other open Swedish/Nordic cultural heritage resources. During Friday evening and throughout the weekend, the Stockholm City Archives will turn into a meeting place where cultural heritage is given new life through new connections, solutions or art forms. Participants will get the opportunity to meet new people, compete and create, and those who contribute to the event by sharing cultural heritage data or other resources will see the resources develop in exciting and unexpected ways.

Hack4Heritage is one of four national hackathons (one Finnish, one Danish, one Swedish and one Norwegian) that will be held in 2016 through a Nordic cooperation on open cultural data. Finland was the first to organise their hackathon, see Hack4FI.

We will return with more information, so stay tuned!

Do you have questions, ideas, or want to contribute? Perhaps you even have a dataset or other open cultural heritage resources just waiting to be shared? Please contact the Project manager moa.ranung@riksarkivet.se.
