Abstract (up to 100 words)

WMCZ was approached by ICOM (International Council of Museums) in the framework of the international ICOM conference held in Prague in August. Within this conference we started to collaborate on a project to preserve works of art by linking the ICOM "Red Lists" - specifically the recently published one for the SE Europe region and by linking the objects listed here with public information that can be found in Wikimedia projects. This linking and supplementing of this information, photos and data is intended to lead to the protection of the most valuable and endangered works of art from illegal trade. This Red List contains works from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia. We would like to invite you and your communities to collaborate on this projectǃ

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

We believe that the benefits of collaboration on the international GLAM project will be beneficial not only for the protection of artworks in the SE Europe region, but also in the context of cooperation in the region in general - we hope for the longevity of the project and the involvement of individuals or communities according to their capabilities. In addition, the project presents the potential for the development of regional GLAM collaborations - ICOM is a recognised authority in this field, as are their Red Lists.
