During January, there have been plenty of events.
Coinciding with Wikipedia's 10th anniversary, the Derby Museum announced that they were starting a collaboration with Wikipedia. To celebrate this cooperation, there will be a Backstage Pass and GLAMWIKI on April 9, 2011 at the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. This marks the first regional GLAMWIKI in the UK. The museum have been eager to see that articles about their artifacts be written in other languages than English. Read more about the project here
