CodingDaVinci is the first German open cultural data hackathon that started in Berlin 2014. They bring together both cultural heritage institutions and the hacker & designer community to develop ideas and prototypes for the cultural sector and the public. In 2016 the hackathon took place in Hamburg and ran for a total of 10 weeks. Open cultural data is usually held by cultural heritage institutions such as galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMs). A list of projects from 2016 can be seen on their website.
In the end I took visitor data from the museums in Hamburg. The data captures group bookings from private persons, schools, universities and other educational institutions. I came up with the idea of a map which shows the amount of museum visits of schools per neighborhood. On another layer I also mapped the amount to students per neighborhood and plotted every school as a marker on the map. This way the user can find out in which areas of Hamburg the schools often visit the museums and which neighborhoods need to catch up.
I think this map is relevant because cultural education is an indispensable part of our education system, as it is essential to the dignity of a human and the free development of his personality (Article 22, UN Human Rights Charter). An important part of this is the school trip to the museum, in order to attract students to art and culture as well as to strengthen their personality formation and social competence by means of cultural education.
