Heritage and Wikimedian in Residence
Wikimedian in Residence
The KOERS museum project in Roeselare was selected as the first project by the committee of the Friends of Wikimedia Belgium Fund. From October to March 2023 it will be running a project on cycling races.
The museum wants to provide Wikidata with results of race events and wants to upload and document pictures to Wikimedia Commons. Together with the Wikimedia community, it also wants to write Wikipedia pages.
Award ceremony Wiki Loves PZ
On 21 May, the (postponed) award ceremony of the Wiki Loves PZ photo contest took place at Castle Ter Rijst in Pepingen. Six winners were allowed to be photographed with the winning photos in the background.
Wiki Loves Heritage
From 1 July until the end of October, we are organising the annual Wiki Loves Heritage photo contest, where all types of heritage, including immaterial and built heritage, are welcome.
This year we also want to involve FARO and the heritage cells. Make use of the holiday to upload missing photos and stand a chance of winning a prize. Experience has shown that even a single photo is a chance to win...
Project Molens Van Orshoven in Leuven
In Leuven, the Sint-Pieterscollege completed a multimedia group assignment on the history of the Molens Van Orshoven.
The project was done in cooperation with the maakleerplek, the municipal archive, the heritage cell, the city council of Leuven, Studio De Beer, the production house De Chinezen, b00t, Wikimedia Belgium and of course the teachers and the students themselves.
The result was a number of collodion photographs on aluminium, a podcast about the history of the mills, an educational igloo and a Wikipedia page. The results were solemnly presented in the mills on 10 June.
