I am an art manager, aiming to make things possible together. That means intermediating since 1994 among different stakeholders: Institutions and artists, public and organisational pretensions, economic needs and financial limits or for five years now connecting galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) with volunteers out of the Wikiverse. Thus enhancing GLAM to join the Open Culture movement as in Wikimedia projects. Like the GLAM hackathon Coding da Vinci, which I outlined with DDB, digiS and OKF. I do foster initiatives making art and cultural heritage findable, reusable and enjoyable creating formats where people meet and conditions that ease collaboration.
