Friday lunchtime lecture: From private collections to open culture
Fri 3 March 2017, 13:00 – 14:00 GMT
Friday lunchtime lectures at the Open Data Institute. You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
The digitisation of public collections has made great works of art available globally, at the click of a mouse. In this talk we’ll look at tax exempt art, Britain’s most obscure public art collection and ask what’s the future for open culture?
