Shifting minds in the culture sector: towards open data in practice

In 2018 the ‘Strategy for culture in the digital age’ was published by the Flemish minister of culture. The culture sector is exploring open data to improve access of their collections for diverse groups of users. PACKED has researched, developed and published data, tools and strategies using open source and open data as a lever for building a sustainable digital memory (Wikimedia, Datahub, cultURIze). We would like to share the results and peek at the new challenges that lie ahead.
