This is the chapter report for Wikimedia Nederland for May 2011.

Hackathon and Wiki Loves Monuments meeting, Berlin

A number of WMNL board members and volunteers attended the Hackathon that took place in Berlin, Germany. Both Maarten Dammers and Lodewijk Gelauff attended a parallel Wiki Loves Monuments European meetup there to coordinate efforts around Europe and share experiences, see commons:Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2011/May Meeting/Notes/Results for a report.

Cultural heritage partners

Maarten Brinkerink reported in the May board meeting about a extraordinary number of contacts. Frequently a contact does not necessarily mean that it will result in something, but he could already report confidentially about some very promising initiatives on the way.

Press and outreach

May 2011 was the month of some catching-up with regard to outreach materials: two roll-ups, stickers, buttons etc. The new website, replacing the old wiki (which will remain for the chapter itself), was still in beta phase.
