I made a PiratePad for organizing the contemporary art documentation
Right now we're building a gathering of sources. A few things we also
need to discuss:
* Who will be our focus group?
o My intention was to have this be geared specifically towards
contemporary visual artists, to be used by Open GLAM
professionals to promote free licenses by those artists. Over
the course of the week, participants also suggested writers,
musicians, all types of creators. Perhaps we can start with one
geared towards contemporary artists, in order to have something
of quality in a timely manner, and move further? Or make
something more encompassing?
* I see this document being something similar to the Wikimedia
Foundation's Annual Report:
o Imagine a document that looks good online and on paper, with
simple calls to action for artists to share their works. If
we're pitching to visual artists, it's important that we have a
visually attractive document with short and simple writing
styles and visual examples of free work.
* Who will print it? Who will support this financially? Will we need
that at all? (The artists I know prefer to hold things in their hand
versus have a PDF online...)
* What names will be on it - as in organizational names. Where will
this document live?
I'm on airport wifi right now and it won't let me connect to Ether or
PiratePads. So perhaps someone can dump this to the Piratepad or It'll
just have to wait until I'm back in the States and not jet lagged :)
Please add your name and contact information. We'll most likely have to
have the occasional Skype/Hangout call, too.
I also encourage you to share resources, and start brainstorming. I have
to tie this into my volunteer capacity since I do not have the pleasure
(yet) to work in the GLAM/Open Culture field in a paid capacity at this
time, so it'll take a happy group of volunteers to make this develop
