Hack4Heritage is a creative event and hack with a focus on open cultural heritage data or content. From 14 to 16 October, the Stockholm City Archives turns into a meeting place where cultural heritage is given new life through new connections, solutions or art forms.
Everyone who is interested in digital cultural heritage and open data or open content is welcome. You may for example be a programmer, a developer, a designer, an academic, a student, a professional from the cultural heritage sector, someone who wants to explore how something digital can be translated into something material or vice versa.
Hack4Heritage is one out of four national events and hacks (one Finnish, one Danish, one Swedish and one Norwegian) being held in 2016 through a Nordic cooperation on open cultural data, with support from Nordic Innovation. Therefore, open cultural heritage content from other Nordic countries will also be connected to the event. Hack4Heritage is arranged by Digisam in cooperation with the Stockholm City Archives.
During Hack4Heritage, participants will be working and developing based on three themes: Code, Creation, and Concept. Prizes will also be awarded for each theme.
