Benefit from open source programs
Zoom or Jitsi, Photoshop or GIMP, Jimdo or WordPress: Those who work digitally and online are often spoiled for choice between large software providers and open source alternatives. In a free online lecture on May 11, 16 to 18 p.m., speaker Dr. Christian Knebel explains why Open Source doesn't have to be complicated, but rather offers some advantages for cultural establishments - even on a small budget.
The event is part of a new qualification series of the regional cultural policy funding program in North Rhine-Westphalia and the cultural offices in the rural regions of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Simone Schiffer, project manager at the Kulturbüro Münsterland, explains: “Due to the corona pandemic, our workshops for cultural actors in the Münsterland are often held digitally, as is the case in the other cultural regions of North Rhine-Westphalia. Reason enough to use synergies and jointly design online offers and offer them across regions. Each region contributes formats to funding, fundraising or marketing - topics that concern and concern us all. "
The practical online lecture is intended to show those working in the arts, especially with a view to digital participation, transparency and self-determination, that open source software offers many possibilities. Speaker Dr. As managing director of PublicPlan GmbH, Christian Knebel accompanies administrations in the digitization process.
