I met Prof Galla at the 17th Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) University in Penang, Malaysia, in 2011, where Prof Galla presented workshops to 41 students (I was one of those students) from 31 countries (including Asia, Europe, and for the first time Australia). His workshops inspired me and helped me along my path of working in the GLAM sector. Thanks Prof Galla!
