January - February 2019 activities: Public Domain Day, Wiki Goes Caribbean, Wiki Fridays, Wikimedians in Residence
Public Domain Day
On Thursday January 3rd The KB - National Library of the Netherlands and Creative Commons Netherlands organized with the support of the National Archives of the Netherlands and Wikimedia Nederland a day full of lectures focusing on works by famous artists, writers and artists who died in 1948.
Wiki Goes Caribbean
On Saturday January 26nd the first writing session of 2019 for Wiki goes Caribbean (WGC) took place in the National Archives of the Netherlands in The Hague. The theme was 'Photo, video and sound'. A number of the twelve new Wikipedians uploaded images to Wikimedia Commons and added images, videos and sound fragments to articles on Wikipedia. Others looked for documents and books in the National Archives of the Netherlands and continued writing articles on Dutch or English Wikipedia. This year, the WGC writing afternoons take place every month in the National Archives of the Netherlands.
Wiki Fridays at Atria
For the third year in a row the Gendergap working group in cooperation with Atria Institute on gender equality and women's history organizes a monthly ‘WikiVrijdag’. Every 4th Friday of the month we meet in the library of Atria in Amsterdam to work on a theme.
Two Wikimedians in Residence (WIR) joined the Academic Heritage Foundation in January 2019 for the Wiki Scientists project. Over the next six months they will work on the project to make the biographical data of Dutch professors and leading scientists available on Wikidata in a structured way. The WIRs will support the eleven affiliated universities to collect and process the biographical data on this platform. On Wikidata, a Wikiwetenschappers project page has been created where you can read more (in Dutch) about the progress of the project.
