Hack Your Heritage!

The Gallen-Kallela Museum participates Hack4FI 2020 in Ateneum Art Museum 13 – 15 March.

Hackers, developers, designers, and GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museum) professionals. Come and get creative with the treasures of cultural heritage at our fingertips. From datasets to APIs and open content platforms, open cultural heritage is there to be reinvented. Let’s learn and play together!


We will participate with a Kalevala Dataset:

The first set consists of 145 images from the Great Kalevala. Akseli Gallen-Kallela started working with the illustrated version of Finnish national epic Kalevala at the beginning of the early 20th century. The hand-painted and handwritten version of the Kalevala was to be his gift to Finnish people but it was never completed.

The second set consists of 29 images from the Illustrated Kalevala. The Illustrated Kalevala was published in 1922 as Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s preliminary work to the Great Kalevala. The book is illustrated with opening and ending vignettes by Gallen-Kallela.
