GLAM outreach to several main islands in Indonesia
After two years of pandemic and stopping all offline activities, GLAM Indonesia kick-off the post-pandemic activities with visitation to four cities: Medan, Yogyakarta, Makassar, and Banjarmasin, in the four main islands of Indonesia: Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, and Kalimantan. In addition, the team got to visit old and new partners in around 18 institutions. We plan to invite most of them to the Open GLAM conference in November. We are also planning to socialize the Indonesian GLAM collections to several universities in the months to come.
In those cities, GLAM Indonesia also promoted Wikistories, piloted in the Indonesian Wikipedia, and collaborated with non-Wikimedian communities in those four cities to test and use the new feature and provide feedback to the developer team. As a result, a competition (Wikistories for GLAM) will be held in September-October to produce more GLAM-themed Wikistories in Indonesian Wikipedia (and GLAM-related pictures to Commons).
Digital Clippings for Commons
Following the success of the previous Digital Clipping event held on Public Domain Day 2022 in Indonesia, GLAM Indonesia organized a workshop that was attended by 17 Wikimedians and issued a challenge to make as many clippings from old Indonesian magazines and upload them to Commons (since the magazines themselves are not license-compatible to Commons yet). During the 1-week mini challenge, 13 participants uploaded 775+ photos from 70+ magazine volumes (an average of 60 pictures and five magazine volumes per participant).
The result dramatically enriches the largely unavailable pictures of Indonesian artists from the 60s to 70s. We hope to maintain this type of event again in the future with different sets of magazines.
Proofreading Competition in Balinese Wikisource
The community-organized competition was held for two weeks, and during that time, 14 participants proofread more than 5.000 pages of documents from 24 books, more than 2.000 of which has been validated. The competition is set to take place annually in three different Wikisource communities: Indonesian, Balinese, and Javanese.
