“Openness and transparency are not a miracle cure-all, and openness in arts and cultural institutions requires significant administrative resources.” This is a quote from the 2020 “Open Culture Project” of Artouch, which captures the struggle of arts and cultural institutions in the face of this wave of Open Data.
When an arts and culture institution chooses to pay the relative cost of opening up its data, the issues of: how to effectively evaluate the benefits and what the follow-up strategies are after opening up the data, are the key points of discussion. The two case studies to be explored in this presentation are: the digital open project for the Li Mei Shu Memorial Gallery’s Wikimedia in 2018, and the structured imagination of 25 years of art materials in Shin Len Yuan in 2020. By quantifying the actual labor costs of the two cases and the benefits of opening up the data, as well as illustrating the actual dilemmas and challenges faced by the two cases, this lecture will provide relatively objective data as a reference for arts and cultural institutions, when thinking about their future Open Data
