Communication and publicityEdit


We sent out our newsletter of November




We evaluated the techstorm with our organizing team. We will report our experiences and publish them on Mediawiki in January.


Upload MalaysiaEdit

Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen has uploaded a new set of images to Wikimedia Commons. It concerns images with photographs and utensils from Malaysia. This upload is the result of a 3 sessions in which we looked together with the museum at the format of the data and how the data-export from the collection can best be arranged to limit the manual adjustment of the data to the minimum. The upload was done with Pattypan. The museum will now work independently with new uploads including images from their collection of West Africa and Indian states.

In 2019 we will hold a concluding meeting with the museum, where we will focus on communicating the donation in order to stimulate the use of the images by the community.
