Open Culture Data started as a grassroots movement at the end of 2011 in which the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, Kennisland and Hack de Overheid joined forces, with the aim to open up data in the cultural sector and stimulate (creative) reuse. In this context, we organised a hackathon, which resulted in the creation of 13 Open Culture Data apps. After this successful first half year, a solid network of cultural heritage professionals, copyright and open data experts and developers was formed.

This video was produced by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in collaboration with Kennisland, as part of the large-scale digitisation project Images for the Future.

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision safeguards more than 800.000 hours of television, radio, music and film from 1898 to today, and collects, preserves and opens this audiovisual heritage for as many users as possible: media professionals, education, science and the general public. Kennisland works on social innovation, gives advice and develops solutions for the issues that crop up during the transformation to a stronger knowledge society. Sound and Vision and Kennisland are both partners in Images for the Future, a large-scale digitisation project in which four organisations have a large part of the audiovisual heritage of the Netherland through preservation and digitisation. The digitised materials are made as broadly available as possible for education and the general public.
