My work at SMK (the national gallery of Denmark) centers around opening up the digitised collections and inviting the public to build on our common heritage for learning, creativity and innovation. I’ve initiated the Sharing is Caring conferences to foster cross-sector dialogue on the potentials and challenges in a digital age shaped by sharing economy and remix culture. I’m a first generation Europeana Members Councillor and elected member of the Board – a job that has taught me that hands-on people like me can take active part in shaping how we want our sector to evolve on a European level.

    Sharing is Caring Hamburg 2017

    Sharing is Caring is spreading to other countries and the first edition outside Denmark will be held in Hamburg, Germany on 20/21 April 2017 at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg and at the University of Hamburg, Institute for Cultural Anthropology. As digitization has become a major task for the cultural heritage sector, more and more cultural institutions are providing access to their digitized collections. But sharing is not only about creating online access, it is about sharing the authority to interpret the digitized assets and to create value by opening them up for reuse.
