Learn more about how Curationist’s free website connects users to over 4.4 million digital artworks and cultural objects sourced from our partner museums, radically broadening the reach of these collections.
The webinar will celebrate open-access arts and culture as a vital digital tool to reimagine cultural narratives, challenge historical inequities, and create vibrant ecosystems of shared knowledge.
Imagine new ways to bring open-source metadata directly to the communities who created and care for their art and artifacts.
Hear from members of the Curationist team and free knowledge movement, including DEI metadata consultant Sharon Mizota, Local Contexts’ Jane Anderson, and Curationist board member Manu Chander.
At launch, users will be able to explore Curationist’s ever-growing archive of public domain and open access artifacts and artworks, and to peruse the critical perspectives and fresh takes published in our editorial features.
