Medieval ballads – Sveriges Medeltida Ballader
Det bodde en bonde vid sjöastrand (De två systrarna – also known as The Two Sisters) - SMV - SVA BB 5363 22
Medieval ballads have been sung for hundreds of years and are still sung today. These ballads are long narrative songs with refrains and as a part of the project Free music on Wikipedia some of them are now available on Wikimedia Commons. According to that user Belteshassar is working with a list of the objects in Wikidata and categories on Commons. One issue is that there are similar songs in several countries and how can we work with questions around that?
Project HBTQI – so we do Wikipedia and the world better together!
Projekt HBTQI – så gör vi Wikipedia och världen bättre tillsammans (with captions in English)
At the beginning of February, we participated in the conference Folk och Kultur with a program on the background and implementation of the LGBTQI project. The project is a collaboration between Sörmland's museum, Biblioteksutveckling Sörmland and Wikimedia Sweden where we work together on a project site on Swedish Wikipedia. Similar projects are available in 26 language so the global connection works directly. The discussion in the program addresses the benefits of a common platform that is open to all.
