The session will be a workshop to discuss communication strategies in Open GLAM and in free culture in general. Participants will share experiences related to the task of communication of digital heritage, digital collections and free culture, as well as reflect conceptually on the strategies. We will try to answer questions related to diversity and the construction of citizenship around the commons, starting from the idea that communication strategies can help people discover and access the commons, but can also have a key role in the promotion of cultural rights in a broader sense.
