During the closing session of WikiCon Brasil 2022, the audience were surprised by one of the first decolonial GLAM partnerships of the Wiki Movimento Brasil (WMB), signed in-person by Valério Mello and Diana Souza from the Rede de Historiadoras Negras e Historiadores Negros (Black Historians Network).
RHN is a Brazilian collective that aims to:
- Create a on-wiki Open Digital Repository of the academic production of Black Historians;
- Create Wikipedia articles about Brazilian black personalities and other people who played a leading role in historical events and processes;
- Add many Wikiquotes of Brazilian black researchers and great personalities, books, films and proverbs.
This in-person signature represents not only our desire of having many more partnerships in favor of diversity on Brazilian Wiki, but also our hope about the future. We wish that from now on we can once again have many opportunities to meet the community in person to fraternize, sign partnerships and think about projects.

The Technical Infrastructure of Cultural Initiatives on Wikimedia: Three Case Studies From Brazil
On mid-July, a group of researchers (Alves, Burley, Lima, Peel and Peschanski) published an article in Essachess - Jornal of Communication Studies, entitled The Technical Infrastructure of Cultural Initiatives on Wikimedia: Three Case Studies From Brazil, presenting the organization and workflow of three Wikimedia initiatives: The photograph contest Wiki Loves Monuments, the National Museum Cross-Wiki Project and the Museu Paulista GLAM-Wiki partnership. In this article, the authors present the strategies for the preservation of cultural heritage collections and the innovations in content dissemination of those initiatives, in the attempt to answer two questions: What is the optimised infrastructure for cultural movements on Wikimedia? and How does the development of processes and resources for cultural preservation and dissemination in a collaborative digital environment happen? The three cases are presented with a Global South perspective on cultural activities on collaborative enviroments and how they should be framed within the local realities of the Global South.
