Project PlanEdit


1. What is the purpose of the meeting and why is it important to your community?

Present a workshop on Wikimedia Commons and open content licensing at the National Library of Portugal, as part of the seminary Wikimedia Portugal is planning for 4 June; work locally in the ongoing GLAM between Wikimedia Portugal and the National Library and discuss with the institution regarding ways to expand the cooperation moving forward; help run a workshop on GLAM/Wikipedia/Commons at Vila Franca de Xira / Alverca for the staff of museums, libraries and cultural institutions of the region; reach out to potential new GLAM partners that will attend the event; meet up with the local community of wikipedians at Lisbon;

2. If applicable, what benefits have you seen from doing this kind of meeting in the past?

Improve community & GLAM partners engagement and knowledge about the Wikimedia projects, in particular those Wikimedia Portugal is involved with.

3. How will you let participants know about the meeting?

Announcements on the relevant wikis, in the WMPT mailing lists, by direct mail to GLAM partners and other institutions we want to invite, and dissemination through our GLAM partners' own channels.

4. How will you keep participants engaged after the meeting is over?

We will remain in close contact, as we've been doing until now, especially in the cases where there's an ongoing GLAM partneship, as is the case with the National Library.

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

I'll be organizing the events and meetings at the National Library along with other members of Wikimedia Portugal, in particular Paulo Perneta, Ana Cravo, and André Barbosa. More members may join, depending on their availability.

  1. Number of events
    • 2
  2. Number of participants
    • We estimate that there will be around 70 to 100 participants
