Archaeology day in Toulouse
While some were watching football, 11 editors held an edit-a-thon in Toulouse during the Journées nationales de l'archéologie (Archaeology national day). The result: 50 articles were created or improved and 229 images imported on Commons.
Prior to the workshop, cultural institutions had selected images illustrating local archaeology from their collections and uploaded them on Wikimedia Commons.
A great opportunity to gather scattered collections and make them known to the public by using them to illustrate Wikipedia articles.
We recently met the INHA (Institut National d'Histoire de l'art) which owns thousands of documents and HD views, mainly iconographic collections and manuscripts documents. As the collection is online yet, the interest for the INHA is to indentify and help in content and data management. We've spoken about training on Wikimedia project for the last quarter.
Palais des beaux-arts de Lille
We also discussed with the "PBA de Lille" about opportunities around their plan-relief collection. These 15 plan-reliefs are undergoing a restoration phase until march 2019. This is the opportunity to enrich Wikipedia articles, document restoration with photos and videos and upload photos of plan-reliefs once restored.
