GLAM/Newsletter/June 2022/Contents/Croatia report
Network(ing) effect(s)In the second quarter of 2022, our (Open) GLAM wiki work in Croatia stayed with focus on Clubture.org and networks in the independent cultural scene. We advanced the visibility of the network's members, publications, related associates and infrastructures with their Wikidata and Commons entries, but also with correcting, updating (saving), translating and writting from scratch on HR and SH Wikipedia (where some of the basic and key phenomena for independent cultural scene are missing). Next steps are related to the coverage of network projects and advocacy work on policies.
We also hope to advance international discussions and articulation about working on (cultural) networks using Wikidata. Please consider to join us and contribute!
As for learnings - we hosted consultation meetings with two local expert guests (sociologist-researcher E. Buršić and archivist-documentarist N. Mokrović) that were previously involved with Clubture, but also consulted with external international open link data expert Lozana Rossenova (from Wikibase stakeholders group and OpenRefine). We conducted a webinar presentation and demonstration workshop for Clubture network members. In the next weeks to follow we hope to advance this work and publish more in September-October before closing of this first pilot project.
Meanwhile, on the other end of cultural spectrum of OpenGLAM work, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, made a first announcement toward 2022 work plans for Wikimedia on the International Museum Day with ICOM press release translated into Croatian and referencing action of Wikimedia Affiliates and few specific local info on state of affairs on wikis (thanks to Ilario).
