Brazilian GLAM panel: Wikidata for digital dissemination strategies
2021-10-29, 19:00–20:10 (UTC), Livestream room

In this session, you will get an overview of the technological maturity in Brazilian museums and understand how Wiki Movimento Brasil developed a process for putting Wikidata at the core of digital dissemination strategies for GLAM partnerships. We’ll dive into the possibilities Wikimedia ecosystem offers for GLAM institutions in different socio economic contexts - from the development of open source technologies to establishing their relevance online. Luciana Conrado, network articulation coordinator of the Tainacan project - a free software for the social construction of digital repositories - and Solange Ferraz de Lima, the former director of the Paulista Museum, an institution closed for almost ten years for renovation that used Wikidata to share and innovate with their collections online, will talk to Marília Carrera, projects manager at Wiki Movimento Brasil.
