The presentation will focus on the difficulties on running GLAM project.
Detailed proposal
In the presentation I will talk about the difficulties of running the GLAM project. In Asia, most museums are operated by the government and it is not easy for us to run the GLAM project. Also the copyright in Asia is different from Europe. It is difficult for the Wikimedia community in Asia to ask the people who possess those artworks to share on Wikipedia. The session will also give room for the discussion with participant about the possibilities of developing the project in Asia.

We will focus mainly on cases of East and South East Asia, i.e. Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, Indonesia.
